“We are pleased to welcome Huntington into the Vishay family,” said Marc Zandman, Vishay’s Executive Chairman and Chief Business Development Officer. “The Huntington product and technology portfolio will further enhance our broad resistor portfolio, particularly in the high power and high current ranges, as well as with resistor assemblies for industrial applications.”
