Pro9 Global founder Daniel Jukic has been named as one of Australia’s top 100 young entrepreneurs in recognition of his innovation within the construction industry.
Jukic joins an impressive list of young business men and women fuelling Australia’s booming business culture, including the heads behind software giant Atlassian and online retailer Kogan.
“It is truly an honour to be recognised alongside such an esteemed group of Australian entrepreneurs. I’d like to extend my gratitude to Business News Australia for this achievement,” said Jukic.
The Top 100 features individuals who have worked tirelessly at building their empires and are prepared to act on ideas and implement new technologies to create thriving businesses.
“We want to help people build better and more affordable houses in Australia. More importantly, our wall systems are a game changer for the construction industry as a whole,” said Jukic.
At just 23 years old Jukic created a specialist mining and construction company that serviced clients such as mining giants BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto.
A decade later, Jukic sold his company MIE Enterprises to global engineering firm FLSmidth for more than $63 million.
Jukic’s latest venture Pro9 Global is on track to cut the average build time of a residential home by at least one third with its prefabricated wall systems.
Jukic recently received a WA Business News 40under40 award in recognition of his innovation in the construction industry with the development of Pro9’s structural wall systems.
Pro9 Global was also shortlisted in four categories of the 2018 Australian Construction Awards for the process and technological innovation of its precision structural wall systems.
“Pro9 Global is seeking to be a world leader in the precision manufacture of smart wall systems for better living. We have proven our system is both time and cost efficient,” said Jukic.
