TECH DISTRIBUTOR CUTS STAFF: Ingram Micro will slash as many as 1,000 U.S. jobs because of softer demand within the tech industry. Ingram, the world's largest distributor of computer products, said the cuts amount to 6 percent of its work force. Ingram also will close a distribution hub in Newark, Calif., and two return processing facilities in Rancho Cucamonga and Santa Ana, Calif. Ingram Micro hopes to save $30-million to $40-million a year after the cuts. Its second-ranked competitor is Clearwater-based Tech Data Corp.
