Recoton Corp. is a leading U.S. manufacturer and distributor of consumer electronics products and accessories. Under various brand names, the company markets various electronic products. The enterprise expanded rapidly in the 1980s and 1990s, primarily by acquiring other companies. The roots of the company that would become Recoton can be traced back to two companies: Record Town, whose name was later abbreviated to Recoton, and a pre-World War II German concern named Polydor Records. Polydor was run by Herbert Borchardt. Borchardt, who was in his twenties at the time, was the scion of a wealthy German industrialist: "Before Hitler, my uncle was one of the richest men in Germany," Borchardt said in the December 4, 1995, Forbes.
