Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has announced that its manufacturing operations in suburban Manila have received three awards for environmental and safety performance from the Philippine government in 2010. They consist of a Certificate of Recognition for environmental performance from the Office of the President and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources; an Energy Efficiency and Outstanding Energy Management award from the Department of Energy; and a Safety Milestone Award from the Department of Labor.

The Certificate of Recognition for environmental performance was awarded to Vishay along with only seven other companies in the Philippines. To be considered for this prestigious award, Vishay Philippines had to satisfy government environmental targets, be fully compliant with all legal requirements respecting permits, emissions, wastewater effluent and recycling standards, and show continuous improvement year over year. The plant actually exceeded the environmental targets projected.

Vishay Philippines manufactures optoelectronic components such as infrared emitters, photo detectors, remote control receivers, LEDs, and optical sensors. The plant is ISO14001 and 9001, OHSAS18001, as well as TS16949 certified, encompassing 12,839 square meters.
