Industry Recognition

When it comes to the custom installation industry, no other company has consistently received more recognition and accolades than Dana Innovations.

With two CEDIA (Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association) “Hall of Fame” awards, Dana Innovations is recognized as the inventor of both the Architectural Speaker and the Invisible Speaker categories. 

Dana Innovations is also the only company to have won eight highly coveted CEDIA “Best new Product” awards in the last seven years. In addition, founder Scott Struthers has received the prestigious CEDIA “Lifetime Achievement” award for his contributions to the industry. 

Recognition goes far beyond its peers, with Dana Innovations achieving a host of awards from architect and Interior designer industry groups, global media and critics alike. 

While these accomplishments and recognition validate Dana Innovations, it is the commitment to lead, invent and reinvent that established it as the marquee of the industry and will continue as its foundation of success into the future.
