Distributor Celebrates Golden Anniversary
By Markkus Rovito
Electronics distributor M. Rothman & Co., Inc. celebrated its 50th anniversary recently with a gathering of customers at its Ramsey, N.J. headquarters and warehouse.
In the showroom, the distributor held what Vice President Douglas Rothman called a substitute for summer CES by showing some of the latest products from its suppliers. "The last time we had a show was over five years ago," said Chief Financial Officer Lawrence B. Francis. "But we plan on having an annual show going forward." Representatives from M. Rothman-carrying brands, which include Sharp, Pioneer, Toshiba, Philips, JVC, Konka and TDK, demonstrated the current technology.
