Our Story

Our history has always been about the future

Our space-age founding

1962 was a time of technological optimism in America and around the world. One man, with one product, was looking into the future and envisioning a better, safer world for people. Vishay quickly established a reputation for innovation and quality.

Growth through strategic acquisition

In 1985, Vishay began an ongoing series of strategic acquisitions to become a broad-line manufacturer of electronic components. This included passive and active components, specialists in infrared components, capacitors, resistors, semiconductors and more.

Empowering the digital revolution

The turn of the millennium ushered in the digital age and rise of smart devices. Vishay quickly adapted and even helped drive this revolution by innovating and transforming our ways of manufacturing and delivering to suit a dynamic new landscape.

The history we’ll make tomorrow

Our legacy has built a global workforce of curious and imaginative people. Together, we embrace change, harness technology, and unlock the full potential of our future.
