Microchip Technology Named One Of “Arizona’s Most Admired Companies” For 2012

Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced it was selected as one of “Arizona’s Most Admired Companies” for 2012 by AZ Business Magazine and Best Companies AZ for the second year in a row. The award recognizes the contributions and impact that Arizona’s top companies bring to the state. Microchip earned the award based on its excellence in four categories—workplace culture, leadership excellence, corporate and social responsibility, and customer opinion. A selection committee comprised of business leaders and subject-matter experts in the four categories determined the winners. The award is based on employee, customer and community ratings, which are areas in which Microchip has consistently ranked strongly.

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of Arizona’s Most Admired Companies for the second year in a row,” said Lauren Carr, Microchip’s vice president of Global Human Resources. “We attribute this award to our unique company culture and guiding values, which include quality coming first in everything we do and recognizing that employees are our greatest strength.”

The winners were announced yesterday at the “Most Admired Companies” Award Reception, held at the Ritz Carlton Phoenix. Winners will be featured in the September/October issue of AZ Business Magazine. For more information about the Arizona’s Most Admired Companies Awards, visit
