PickNik was founded with the mission of growing the MoveIt project through community leadership and contract software development. We consider MoveIt our flagship product and build most of our projects off it, though notably MoveIt was originally conceived at Willow Garage. While PickNik leads the growth and maintenance of MoveIt, we believe it's important to acknowledge the vibrant international community of collaborators and maintainers that play a huge role by improving the software and adding new features.
PickNik is a for-profit company that balances the need to improve the open source code of MoveIt with the need to develop proprietary and commercial software for our clients. PickNik also develops premium products to generate continued income, such as MoveIt Studio.
