Founded in 1946 as Ed Glassman Plumbing & Heating, owner Ed Glassman built the fledgling business into one of the area’s busiest mechanical contracting firms. After working for Ed since 1946, Joseph’s father, Adolph, and his partner, Charles Staab, purchased the business in 1972 and renamed it Glassman/Staab Inc.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Joe Glassman opened Glassman Climate Control in Russell, Kansas in 1980. In 1985 he purchased his father’s business, merged it into Glassman Climate Control, and moved the company from Russell to Hays. With the expanding scope of Glassman’s building and mechanical services, the name changed to Glassman Corporation in 1991.
In 2011, the company moved into a new 31,000 square-foot campus housing and administration building and a large production, fabrication, and inventory control facility. The facility is one-of-a-kind in Kansas.
Today, Glassman Corporation is a multi-million dollar company employing nearly 100 people, including pipefitters, plumbers, mechanical service technicians, estimators, sales engineers, sheet metal fabricators, and administrative professionals. Our size allows us to be competitive and deliver high-quality products and services to our customers.

If you find yourself without heating this winter, you can take a few steps to make your home more comfortable as you wait for repair. Please note, however, that if it’s dangerously cold, or if people in your home can’t tolerate the wait, it’s important to look for an alternate situation like staying with family, friends, or at a hotel.
Here are a few tips to help you wait it out, if you must:
- Use space heaters to heat limited areas of the home, preferably a single room.Make sure you only plug space heaters directly into a wall outlet, ensure that nothing flammable is nearby, and never leave it unattended.
- Use towels to cover the bottom of every outside door to keep out cold air.
- Limit opening and shutting any outside doors, including doors that lead to the garage.
- Keep your curtains drawn, and hang a heavy blanket over windows that aren’t double-paned.
