Data analytics innovator Bellrock Technology has secured the opportunity to bid for a share of a £2 billion pot of public sector contracts.

The Glasgow-based firm will provide its full range of data solutions – including Data Science Deployment, Artificial Intelligence (AI) Deployment and Machine Learning – to support Government organisations in their use of data analytics.

The listing represents another significant milestone in what it describes as an “excellent 2020” for the company.

It was recently named as the only Scottish firm invited to take part in the GCHQ Innovation Co-Lab.

It will be mentored along with nine other tech businesses which use AI, Data Science and Machine-Learning as part of a 12-week support programme, based out of GCHQ’s Manchester office.


Bellrock Technology, founded by Adam Brown and Professor Stephen McArthur, also received £1 million from its long-term investors – allowing it to double its workforce to 16.

It completed its new board with the appointments of Steve Langmead as chairman, Dave McConachie as chief commercial officer, and Hugh Lennie as chief financial officer.

The firm also released the latest version of its proprietary technology – Lumen 6.0 – which was developed from research led by Professor McArthur, who is Deputy Associate Principal for Research, Knowledge Exchange and Innovation at the University of Strathclyde.

Mr McConachie said: “Bellrock Technology’s inclusion in G-Cloud 12 is a hugely significant moment for our business. It gives us the opportunity to be considered as a data analytics supplier for UK Government.”
