An innovator in the commercial lighting industry, 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," said Mr Ho.

Unios also took home the 2019 Telstra Western Australian Medium & Making Waves Award.

The Telstra Business Awards are a long standing, exclusive platform that recognise 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 & Energised, Small & Succeeding, Medium & Making Waves, and Social Change Maker.

Telstra Group Executive, Consumer & Small Business, Michael Ackland, said the winners of the 2019 Telstra Western Australian Business Awards demonstrated excellence across six key judging criteria, underpinned by 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," Mr Ackland said.

"They have inspired us all with their resilience, courage and incredible commitment.

"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."

All 2019 Western Australian winners will join other state and territory category winners at the national 2019 Telstra Australian Business Awards in Melbourne on Thursday 21 November 2019.
