Both she and her fiance like
working together, although she
says with a laugh that she does
more of the work. They met
when Ms. Cooper began work-
ing at Quik Text three years ago.
Ms. Cooper explained that
TravelNet will focus less on the
airline companies, which already
advertise online, and more on
places to go, including golf cours-
es and ski resorts.
The company would like to go
after some tourist sites in Michi-
gan that the casual traveler might
not know about, like a bed and
breakfast in Saugatuck and oth-
er weekend getaways.
"We want to put in information
like population and things to do.
This could be used for research,
too," she adds. ❑

To Cut Jobs
Jerusalem (JPFS) — Vishay In-
tertechnology Inc. (Israel) is ex-
pected to grow despite the
parent company's plan to cut
1,700 jobs from its manufactur-
ing centers in the United States
and Europe, Chief Financial Of-
ficer Richard Grubb said.
Three hundred of the jobs
which the developer and manu-
facturer of electronic resistors
and resistive sensors plans to cut
will be transferred to Vishay's
four Israel-based factories, re-
sulting in net cuts of 1,300 jobs
and $24 million in annual sav-
ings, Mr. Grubb said.
The Pennsylvania-based com-
pany plans to transfer some of
these jobs to its fifth plant in Is-
rael, which is expected to open
in Ofakim in about a year's time.
Company officials estimate
that the Ofakim site, which has
yet to receive official government
approval, will employ between
300 and 350 workers.
