For the 11th Year in a Row, CEC Makes SCN Magazine’s Top 50 List

Since 2006, CEC has been named to Systems Contractor News’ Top 50 Systems Integrators list, which ranks projected systems integration revenue

Hiawatha, IA (Dec. 4, 2017) – CEC, a nationally recognized systems and technology integrator based in Hiawatha, IA, is excited to announce that, for the 11th consecutive year, it has been named to the SCN Top 50 Systems Integrators List. Of the 50 companies on the list, CEC is also the longest-running integration firm recognized across the country.

Every year, SCN identifies 50 U.S. integration firms that go above and beyond to set the standard for other integrators. Ranked by projected AV systems integration revenue, the list is a compilation of audiovisual integrators that demonstrated business stability, financial responsibility, and growth in 2017. This year, CEC placed at No. 35 on the list – up two spots from last year’s rank of No. 37.

AV is just one of the many technology integration solutions CEC offers. IT, safety and security, structured cabling, and two-way communications systems can all be integrated with AV solutions to improve safety, efficiency, productivity, and profits.

“Not only are we proud to be part of this list for the 11th year in a row,” says Matt Dlouhy, CEO at CEC, “but we’re just as proud of the fact that we’ve been in business for more than seven decades. For 71 years, CEC has been dedicated to improving the customer experience. As the industry and our clients’ needs change, so do we – which is how we thrive.”

“The industry as a whole has grown considerably from last year, with a projected $4.27 billion in commercial AV installation revenue,” says SCN Editor Megan A. Dutta. “That’s an increase of about 12 percent year-over-year from last year’s projections of $3.82 billion.”
