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.

March can be brutally cold for parts of the country, but sometimes people pay less attention to heating safety towards the end of the heating season.
Here are some tips to keep your family safe from carbon monoxide and fires until winter is far behind.
1. Install fire detectors – You should have a fire detector in every room and in each hallway, especially near sleeping areas. You should also check the batteries several times throughout the heating season.
2. Install carbon monoxide detectors – You can’t see or smell carbon monoxide, but it is a deadly hazard. Carbon monoxide detectors can alert your family to the presence of carbon monoxide. Remember to check their batteries several times throughout the heating season.
3. Fire extinguishers – Every home should have a few fire extinguishers, preferably the ultra-versatile ABC style. You should check them regularly to ensure they are function and make sure everyone knows where they are and how to use them.
4. Make a plan – Talk with every member of your family about fire safety and what you should do in case of an emergency. This is especially important if you have small children, elderly family members, and/or pets.
