Vishay Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update (April 28, 2020)
Important Information for Our Customers
Dear Valued Customer,
Following up on our letter of April 14th, the following is an update on the operational status of Vishay’s manufacturing facilities as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. As of today, Vishay factories in the following countries continue to experience some level of significant production disruption:
- Dominican Republic – capacity improvement since 4/14
- Mexico – capacity reduction since 4/14
- Philippines – capacity improvement since 4/14
- Malaysia – capacity improvement since 4/14
- India – no change from 4/14
No new countries have been added to the above list since April 14th. In all of the above cases, manufacturing disruptions continue to be the result of quarantine, travel, or other legal restrictions imposed by local authorities, over which Vishay has no control. We remain committed to full compliance with such regulations, and to doing everything possible to insure the wellbeing of our employees, and of all citizens, living within the countries in which we operate.
Your local Vishay sales contacts can provide further detail on which Vishay products are manufactured at these locations (and it should be pointed out that there may be more than one facility in some countries), and with regards to how these disruptions will impact your specific orders. All other Vishay facilities worldwide remain fully operational, or have been impacted relatively minimally by Covid-19.
Thank you for your understanding.
