Our company’s success is dependent on our employees and the communities where we live and work. Solaris promotes a culture of safety, innovation and diversity. We strive to provide a workplace where every person feels safe, valued as part of the team and enabled to succeed. We also believe in giving back to our communities at the local level and actively partner with the communities where we live and work.

Our Values

At Solaris, we aim to be first in service and innovation, and achieving this goal is only possible when every employee abides by our core values.  At Solaris, our fundamental policy is to act with honesty and integrity. Our core values encourage employees to be entrepreneurial, safe, act as part of team without ego, and take ownership of not just our tasks but also our mistakes, so that we can all learn and grow from them. Every employee receives a copy of our core values and is encouraged to refer to them often.

In Early, Texas, where our manufacturing facility is located, we sponsor city events through the Early Chamber of Commerce, local rodeo and local schools and youth organizations.
