VPG and Fullyearn Renew Distribution Partnership, Focus on Precision Test Instruments, Semiconductor Test Equipment, and Consumer Electronics in Taiwan

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Aug 22, 2012) - Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG) today announced that the company has renewed its distribution partnership with Taiwan-based Fullyearn ( To meet Taiwan's high demand for foil resistors in precision measurement instruments, semiconductor test equipment, consumer electronics, and other electronic applications, Fullyearn provides quick and convenient access to the Vishay Foil Resistors (VFR) brand's entire lineup of Bulk Metal® Foil and Z1-Foil resistors throughout the country.

Located in New Taipei City, Fullyearn was established in 1997 and has earned an excellent reputation as a distributor of passive components to a variety of customers for a variety of end products, including instrumentation, power/UPS, LED, communications, and more. As a distributor for the VFR brand, Fullyearn will focus on serving the needs of precision measurement instruments, semiconductor test equipment, aerospace, military, and other applications that require precision resistors.

For Fullyearn's customers, the VFR portfolio includes products in a variety of resistor configurations and package types: discrete resistors and resistor networks in surface-mount and through-hole (leaded) configurations, customized chip resistor networks, precision trimming potentiometers, and discrete chips for use in hybrid circuits. Precision resistors built on VFR's unique Bulk Metal Foil technology provide very low temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) and exceptional long-term stability even in extreme temperatures. The devices provide a wide range of resistance values, with any resistance value within their given range available at any tolerance with no additional cost or lead time effect.
