Vishay Intertechnology Inc., a manufacturer of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components, has acquired BCcomponents Holdings BV.

BCcomponents is a manufacturer of passive components with operations in Europe, India, and the Far East. The product lines of BCcomponents include linear and nonlinear resistors; ceramic, film and aluminum electrolytic capacitors; and switches and trimming potentiometers.

Commenting on the transaction, Dr. Felix Zandman, chairman and CEO of Vishay, stated: "We expect to quickly begin integrating the operations of BCcomponents with our passive component business in Europe and elsewhere around the world. This acquisition gives us an extensive portfolio of new products, complements our MLCC and tantalum capacitor lines, offers meaningful opportunities for synergies and cost savings and enhances our position in passive components generally. This is our first major acquisition in the passive area in ten years."
