M. Rothman’s Future in Question
Rumors are swirling around at the CEA Line Shows in New York City and within the CE industry that M. Rothman, the New Jersey-based consumer electronics distributor that recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, is going out of business.
Russell Rothman, executive vice president at the company, did not return a call to his cell phone Wednesday afternoon. An operator at the company earlier in the day said Russell and his two brothers, Billy and Douglas, the other two company principals, had left the distributor’s Ramsey, N.J., headquarters earlier in the day and had not returned.
“I expect them back because their stuff is still here,” she said. “I really don’t know what’s going on.”
