New Vishay Intertechnology Website Provides Improved Access to Product Information, Service, and Support
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — June 4, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) has launched a redesigned Company website — www.vishay.com — to better serve customers, strategic partners, and others. It features improved access to product information via reorganized homepage product categories, an enhanced search system, and improved product selection information. The redesigned site also provides streamlined access to customer service and support, design tools, and Company information.
The new homepage has clearly defined categories for Semiconductors, Passives Components, and Customer Applications. Each of these main categories has sub-categories with drop-down menus for easier navigation by product part number, technical parameters, or market segment. Highlighted Search, Contact Us, and Buy Now (Check Distributor Stock) links appear on each page as the user navigates through the site. Below the main categories at the center of the homepage are links to Design Support, Quality and Environmental information, and New Web Site Features, which includes a short video titled How to Use Vishay.com at http://ecorptv.com/video/120458/How-to-Use-Vishaycom.
In response to user requests, the redesigned Vishay Intertechnology website makes it easier for design engineers and purchasing agents to “drill down” to the desired product information and receive customer support. At the same time, users looking for non-technical information will benefit from the new Company Info gateway, which has links to About Vishay, Brands, Careers, Contacts, Investor Relations, Trade Shows, and other sections.
In addition, the new Vishay Intertechnology homepage has a quick link to the separate website — www.vishaypg.com — for the Foil Technology Products and Weighing Modules and Control Systems businesses that are anticipated to be spun off into an independent, publicly traded company to be named Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG).
Upcoming improvements to the Vishay Intertechnology website include an expanded Video Library and new Virtual Trade Shows sections.
