European agreement completes global representation deal

RS Components has further strengthened its relationship with Vishay following the completion of a European distribution agreement.  The new agreement means that RS now formally represents Vishay around the globe through three regional agreements.  Vishay is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components.

RS holds a stock profile of over 11,000 Vishay products, available online for next-day delivery.  The range features a vast selection of passive components, including tantalum, aluminium and film capacitors, variable, power and thin film resistors and magnetics, alongside a growing semiconductor portfolio featuring mosfets, power ICs and analogue signal routing switches.  Vishay products are being supported by RS through a Brand microsite in the Electronics Centre, which brings together product, market and application guides as well as data for the full range of Vishay components.  Full Vishay range and application details can be accessed.

Chris Page, Electronics General Manager, for RS commented, “This European distribution agreement enables us to bring Vishay’s market leading products to our global customer base.  The world class online engineering tools and support provided by RS together with our unrivalled customer reach is continuing to attract the world’s leading component manufacturers.”

Philippe Masson, Director Sales Distribution Europe from Vishay continued, "Vishay is delighted to be extending its relationship with RS throughout Europe.  RS provides design engineers with a proven online technical resource and has a reputation for outstanding customer support making them an ideal partner for Vishay’s unmatched portfolio of discrete semiconductors and passive components.”

RS Components is the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc.
