Clitheroe-based Glider Technology has secured a ‘significant’ undisclosed investment from Cow Corner.

Glider was first founded in April 2016 by Nick Hutchinson and Steve Rukuts and has become an industry-leading provider of digital solutions and BIM consultancy, working with some of the UK’s largest construction companies, well-known corporates and public sector organisations.

In 2023, the co-founders decided to look for an investment partner to help them realise their future growth ambitions and selected Brighton-based private equity company, Cow Corner.

Cow Corner is a small, privately owned investment business that supports services and software businesses in the UK.

“In Cow Corner, we found not just an investor, but a partner whose philosophy and approach to business resonate with our own. Their expertise and support are keys that will unlock further potential within Glider, propelling us towards our ambitious future goals.”

IT director, Steve Rukuts, added: “The investment and support from Cow Corner is going to be a game-changer for Glider.

“We’ve built a solid platform of software solutions we believe in, matched with a strong, diverse and expert team of technically minded digital specialists.”

The investment will help Glider to accelerate growth.
