Avnet Receives Semiconductor Distributor of the Year Award from Vishay

01 July 2016

Electronics distributor Avnet, Inc. recently received the Distributor of the Year award for Semiconductor Products in the Americas from Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. The award was based on sales records for the fiscal year ending March 31. This is the second time in five years that Avnet’s sales performance has earned it Distributor of the Year honors from Vishay.

Vishay Intertechnology is one of Avnet’s longest-running franchise relationships. In 2013, the two companies celebrated their milestone 50th year of doing business together. Vishay signed Avnet as a distributor just one year after the company was formed in 1962 to bring its patented Bulk Metal® foil resistors to market. Today the two companies work to bring Vishay’s state-of-the-art discrete semiconductors, optoelectronics, integrated modules and passive components to Avnet’s broad customer base around the globe.

“Earning the Vishay Distributor of the Year award holds special meaning for us. It’s a great reflection of the ongoing, and growing, value that Avnet and Vishay bring to the market,” said Ed Smith, president of Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas, in a statement. “At Avnet, we take pride in the role we play in supporting both the technical and supply-chain requirements of our customers and suppliers. Winning this award for a second time in a few short years confirms that strength.”
