Vishay Intertechnology Ranked Among "Electronic Business Top 250" Electronics Companies
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - August 1, 1999 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., has been recognized by Electronic Business as one of the largest electronics companies in the world in the magazine's expanded ranking. Each year, the electronics management publication benchmarks industry-leading firms and organizations in its highly respected, eagerly anticipated special report. This year, the competition was far more rigorous than ever before.
To be considered as an EB 250 contender, companies must be publicly held and derive a significant dollar value or percentage of revenue from electronics. In previous years, the "Top Companies" ranking listed only U.S. firms. Starting this year, the list has combined both U.S. and foreign public firms, to better reflect the global nature of the electronics industry.
Electronic Business, founded in 1975, is designed exclusively to meet the business information needs of senior electronics executives. Each month, the magazine reaches over 52,000 management-level subscribers at the world's leading electronics companies. Electronic Business is published monthly by Cahners Business Information.
