Over 50 years ago in 1962, named after his ancestral village in Lithuania, funded by a loan from his cousin Alfred P. Slaner, Dr. Felix Zandman found Vishay. Originally manufacturing of foil resistors and foil resistance strain gages the company diversified in 1985 through a number of strategic acquisitions to develop a broad portfolio of electronic components.

      Through continued research and acquisitions, Vishay has become one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components. Recent acquisitions include:

      • Capella Microsystems
      • Holy Stone Polytech
      • MCB Industrie
      • HiRel Systems
      • Huntington Electric: Resistor businesses
      • KEMET: Wet tantalum capacitor business
      • International Rectifier: PCS business

      As a global company, Vishay has manufacturing plants in the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Israel, as well as sales offices worldwide offering a wide number of product types:

      • Semiconductors: MOSFETs, ICs, Diodes and rectifiers; Optoelectronics.
      • Passive Components: Resistors; Inductors & other magnetics and Capacitors.

      With next day delivery of products direct from stock, Vishay Intertechnology and RS Components have a comprehensive range of semiconductors and passive components for every application.
