Press release date: June 6, 2012

MALVERN, Pa. - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH) today announced that it received two 2011 Silver-level "Perfect Order" awards from Arrow Electronics, Inc.

Speaking in April, when the awards were first announced, Don Elario, Arrow's Director of Quality for the Americas and Global Leader of Arrow's Quality Network, said, "Arrow strives to provide the highest level of service to our customers.
