Commercial lighting company Unios has been named the 2019 Telstra Western Australian Business of the Year.
Founded by Paley Ho, Unios designs and manufactures architectural lighting that is featured in multi-residential buildings, airline terminals and commercial developments across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.
The Perth business aims to tackle the complexity of commercial lighting projects, involving numerous stakeholders, by developing a digital platform to make the entire process of design, specification, construction and support a seamless workflow for all parties involved.
“Our business stems from the desire to disrupt an industry by making every step of the journey simpler while also making the most of technology advances,” Ho said.
Unios also took home the 2019 Telstra Western Australian Medium and Making Waves Award.
The Telstra Business Awards are a long standing, exclusive platform that recognize Australia’s best businesses, provide expert advice, open networking opportunities and help them gain the credibility to take their business to the next level.
Winners were chosen across four categories: Emerging and Energised, Small and Succeeding, Medium and Making Waves, and Social Change Maker.
Telstra executive Michael Ackland said the winners demonstrated a commitment to innovation and technology.
“The Western Australian winners are shining examples of businesses doing great things in new and effective ways for their customers,” he said.
“With its finger always on the pulse, Unios challenges a market traditionally dominated by only a handful of global players. They’re breaking through the status quo by bringing together design, performance and value. In this very complex industry, Unios competes on an international scale and has demonstrated strong financial results, an inspiring vision and long-term expansion plans.”
