VISHAY Intertechnology is an American company founded in 1962 which manufactures a wide range of transistors, optocouplers, resistors, zener diodes and others. In the beginning it was operating with a patented technology of only two product lines: foil resistors and foil resistant strain gauges. Since 1985, VISHAY has adopted a business strategy, which mainly consisted of the following elements: expansion in the production of electronic components, mainly through the acquisition of other brands and manufacturers of electronic components; cost reduction; transfer of manufacturing operations to countries with lower labor costs and government-sponsored incentives; maintaining significant production facilities in regions where VISHAY traded most of their products; continuous innovation and new products; and strengthen relationships with customers and strategic partners. As a result of this strategy, VISHAY has grown from a small manufacturer of precision resistors and strain gauges resistant to one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of a wide range of electronic components in the world. Today, VISHAY Intertechnology is one of the world's largest producers of premium quality passive electronic components, discrete semiconductors, rectifiers, diodes, thermistors, capacitors, inductors, optoelectronics and others.
