Hong Liang Lu founded Unison World, Inc., starting the company in 1983. In 1986, Unison was acquired by Kyocera International, Inc., the U.S. arm of Japan-based Kyocera Corp., a technical ceramic producer that manufactured a diverse range of components. After the acquisition, Lu became president and chief executive officer of the majority-owned subsidiary created by the deal, Kyocera Unison.

Unison World created many programs but was probably best known for Print Master - a product meant to compete with Broderbund's The Print Shop.

Kyocera Unison merged with Kyocera Electronics in 1990, effective killing the Unison name.
