Jim Corboy & Dave Brown
Inside Sales / Customer Service Representatives

To hear Dave tell it, Jim tricked him into losing a bet.

“Jim bet me the Pirates wouldn’t win 81 games in 2013 and that Andrew McCutchen wouldn’t bat .300.” He frowns.

To hear Jim tell it, Dave lost the bet fair and square.

“The pirates didn’t win 81 games in 2013. They won 94 games. And McCutchen didn’t bat .300, he batted .317.”

That’s how it goes with these two, especially during a sports season.

And that means anytime.

Jim Corboy

Jim has been with Precision since day one, when the company was a new operation in a shared warehouse in Lawrence, PA. In his capacity as Inside Sales and Customer Service Representative, Jim handles order and payment processing, expediting, accounting, and inventory control.

He brings the company more than 40 years of experience in customer service and inside sales. Before Precision, Jim worked inside sales with Gateway Industrial Supply, a company that supplied hand, pneumatic, and electric tools to a variety of industries.

Outside of work, Jim enjoys sports, friendly wagers, 45’s, doo-wop music, and Italian food. He’s also coached baseball, soccer, and softball for youth leagues.

Dave Brown

Dave joined Precision in 2012, and, like Jim, he handles order and payment processing, expediting, accounting, and inventory control. He has more than 30 years experience in management, sales, and customer service. Before Precision, Dave owned his own company, worked as an insurance agent, and spent 20 years in discount retail management.

Beyond work, Dave is passionate about Pittsburgh sports, especially the Pirates. “I listened to games with my Dad and went to many games with him. It’s one of the first things I remember doing, and I’ve loved it ever since. I’ve been a Pirates fan as long as I remember. They say everyone should have a passion. That’s mine.”
