Our History

Two South Dakota State University engineering professors, Aelred Kurtenbach and Duane Sander, founded Daktronics in 1968. Their dream was to retain talented students by providing viable, challenging work right here in South Dakota. Today, Daktronics has grown into a world-leading manufacturing operation.

Daktronics values engagement in the communities where our employees live and work.
