Welcome to
Solair Group

We are committed to delivering High Quality Tools and GSE, Exemplary Customer Service, Trust and Teamwork to our customers. How may we help you today?

Where We Began

Our company started in 2001 when entrepreneur, Wes Yale, uncovered a need for tool manufacturing and distribution in the global airline industry. He observed that airline mechanics couldn’t get reliable tools quickly enough to fix grounded planes, costing airlines millions of dollars. Wes put his entrepreneurial skills to use and filled that need by creating Solair Group. 


Solair Group’s mission is to satisfy the needs and expectations of our customers, employees, and investors by providing quality products and services, a safe and harmonious work environment while remaining competitive in the industry.


Solair Group’s solid vision is to satisfy the needs and expectations of the aerospace industry by providing quality products and services while remaining competitive in the industry.


Our early experience in the aerospace industry proved to our team that the need for specialized tools delivered on time and on budget was far greater than originally discerned.

Seeing the complexities our customers faced in managing a fragmented supply chain convinced us that there was an opportunity for Solair to create real value.  One source of supply for a broad range of equipment and services, delivered quickly at a fair price.

Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.

Understanding how to anticipate market needs to accommodate fluctuations in customer orders, while still growing as a company demonstrated points in our processes that we consistently had to evolve.

We recognized that to fulfill the expectations set by the industry and maintain our customers’ trust, our business required reliable resources, impeccable manufacturing skills, and a formidable internal infrastructure to ensure success for our customers and our company.

We Focused On Improvement

We know you have a choice in who you trust to provide tools for your airline. We also know that you need us to be at our best. Our goal has always been to be your top of mind trusted partner in the GSE and tool manufacturing, distribution, and repair business.

To achieve this goal, we reassessed how Solair Group met our customers and our industries expectations. We made organizational changes, so we can deliver our very best products and services swiftly and within budget to you, our customers, while meeting or exceeding industry standards.

Producing Results Through Innovative Action

For Solair Group to realize our vision in the aerospace industry, new leadership with extensive corporate experience was tasked with mastering the challenges the airline industry faces in a global economy confronted by resource deficits.

Our leadership team has assessed our customers’ expectations and the effectiveness of Solair teams’ ability to meet and exceed those expectations. 

For Solair Group to become your trusted business partner, we recognize four conditions that our teams need to meet:


Our company is our people: We duly recognize that our customers depend on our employees as partners. When customers call, they want to speak to their trusted contact.

Manufacturing tools to the highest industry standards, surpassing both industry and customer expectations, is the standard we must continue to measure our manufacturing success by.


Delivery lead times are a priority for our customers. Finding creative ways to get tools and equipment to our customers at lightning speed is our priority too.

Our company’s infrastructure must be designed to efficiently manage our internal and external processes, so our teams can unequivocally follow through on promises to our customers.

Marcos Alonso

CFO of Solair Group, LLC

I joined Solair in late 2018, while Scott joined in mid-2019. Our extensive corporate experience allowed us to develop a strategy that would take Solair to the next level. As 2019 closed with a strong finish, Solair was positioned for a promising start to 2020.

In 2020 the industry was already showing early slowdowns when the COVID pandemic took hold in March. As the volume of orders reduced, we took quick action, temporarily adjusting our business model and operating capacity, which allowed Solair to continue serving our customers, while getting ahead of the curve.

When the full impact of the pandemic was evident, the market came to a near full stop. We quickly adjusted our plans, which kept the business operating at expected service levels, while continuing to service our customers. Our investors stepped in and acted, providing resources and support at the right time. All realized the situation required a long term outlook, a “holding power.”

Together with our financial partners, we increased Solair’s efficiency, preparing for the “new market“ to emerge. Constant development with a focus on our customers is how we do business.

Isn’t that the kind of partner you want to work with?

Director of Operations

Be Proud of Yourself

My career has been spent working in manufacturing. I like planning and working with numbers. Success has come because different people saw my desire to learn and recognized that I was not afraid to work hard-–to challenge myself to reach for what I wanted. 

Before Scott offered me a position at Solair Group in 2019, I was working for a company that made military products. In just a few years, we had built the plant from 35 to 500 people with government defense contracts and orders that totaled 150 million dollars. 

My entire career has been spent in manufacturing, creating strong, healthy relationships within the company and with customers. My experience has taught me that it’s not about how big the challenge is, it’s about how much you believe in yourself. 

I have my dad to thank for my outlook and mindset about work. He taught me to be proud of work and never be afraid of a challenge. My dad didn’t look at situations as a problem, he looked at them as opportunities. He taught me to do the same. 

I’m Sergio Molina, VP of Operations at Solair Group. We welcome the challenges your business faces. How may I help you today?

Ricardo Sierra

Vice-President of Sales

I joined Solair in January 2021. Scott, Marcos, and I had discussed my taking on the role of VP of Sales in 2020. However, we were in unprecedented times, so we waited until the market stabilized, and then I became a part of the team.

Having made the choice to work for a smaller firm, in a position where my experience would directly impact the company, I was excited to share my expertise and ideas, as well as learn from individuals who had extensive corporate experience.  

Over the many years of working in customer service in various business models and industries, I have learned one very important lesson: True customer service is being the solution to a problem.

No matter the situation, my goal is the same: to maintain the highest level of commitment to and stay in communication with my customers. If a problem happens, I explain it to the customer and share with them the steps taken to deal with the issue. Then, I follow up with them, explaining how the issue will be rectified in the future. 

Regardless of industry, customers remember a business that puts their needs first, seeing contacts as partnerships, not just transactional connections. 

I’m Ricardo Sierra, VP of Sales, and I’m your partner at Solair. 

Scott Cummings

President of Solair Group, LLC.

My career in engineering began a couple of years after I was awarded my degree. The first few years between university and my first “real job” at B/E Aerospace was spent on a boat, learning to be a part of a crew, which gave me valuable insight later in my career. 

After starting at B/E Aerospace as an engineer, I took on larger roles in the company with increasing responsibility. As my positions changed, I noticed that what really got me out of bed in the morning was the opportunity to help others realize their potential and see what they could accomplish by working in concert with one another.  The value that high performing teams, with the right focus and guidance, could create for a business, its customers and our employees.

In 2019, I joined Solair Group. Stepping again into a role as a new leader. Proud to join a business with such a strong value proposition for our industry.  We’ve taken risks, accelerated change, and laid a foundation for the future with one thing in mind – how can we best serve our customer’s needs.

I’m Scott Cummings, President of Solair Group. How may I help you?
