About us: founders with a vision

Pick-it was founded in 2016 as a product spinout from Intermodalics, an organization that develops software for robots and developed and tested the Pick-it product for 3 years before bringing it to market. The three founders Peter Soetens, Ruben Smits and Bert Willaert saw the potential to simplify the process automation for a large number of production companies with one single product. During its first year of operation Pick-it gave eyes to more than 100 robots and has since gone on to win a number of prestigious competitions such as the Trends Pitcher’s day and Deloitte Rising Star.
