Vacuum Pump Repair


March 30, 2021

First, I want to take the opportunity to thank you, our loyal customers, for your support over the past five years. Without you, Vacuum Pump Services would not have existed. I would also like to thank Bill Jones for giving me this opportunity to lead VPS from nothing to what it is today!

Life has made me a wiser man over my career. I have worked for the Solar companies for over thirty years, and I could not have asked for a better experience. However, I have made the difficult decision to retire. My retirement leaves VPS in the position of a ship without a captain. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to close VPS’ operations as of April 30, 2021. We will cease accepting new orders immediately, but please do not worry, because we plan on finishing strong and completing all work presently in-house and paying all outstanding payables.

Vacuum pump service and repair is a highly specialized business and there are fewer and fewer experts in our industry. However, we are ready and willing to help guide and transition you to another qualified vendor to meet your needs. We are one family at Solar, and I will remain with Solar Manufacturing through April 2022 on a consulting basis and continue certain service contracts.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have or contact John Hahn our manager of aftermarket services here at Solar Manufacturing. John can be reached at 267-384-5040, ext.1545.

Once again, thank you for all your support over the last 5 years. I wish you and yours well!
