Daktronics is recognized worldwide as a leader in the large electronic display industry.
We design, manufacture, sell, and provide services for a variety of display products in four primary markets: large sports, small sports, commercial and transportation.

Our History

Daktronics was founded December 9, 1968, by Drs. Aelred Kurtenbach and Duane Sander, professors of Electrical Engineering at South Dakota State University in Brookings, S.D. The original goal of the company was to offer an alternative to university graduates who were leaving the area for greater opportunities. From those humble beginnings, we grew into the world-leader in LED digital display systems, and today set the market standards for customized digital display systems. We employ more than 3,000 employees.
