DETROIT (Feb. 12)—Precix Inc. has hired a Detroit-based account manager to bolster its automotive sales efforts. James J. Laginess joins Precix from Hutchinson FTS where he held the same position. Separately, Precix announced its new membership in the Michigan Minority Business Deployment Council, saying the move will aid it in the pursuit of minority suppliers and business partners. Precix, formerly Acushnet Rubber Co. Inc., went from 1,000 employees in 1999 to only 150 last year as it finished trimming its operations to focus on its core businesses of high-performance O-rings, seal rings and custom elastomer products for the automotive, aerospace and chemical processing industries.
