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.

It’s been a rough winter for many, with record snowfall and freezing temperatures. Given the harshness of the season, you’re probably ready to welcome spring, even if that means it’s time to do some maintenance.
While your home is unique, we’ve gathered a list of some common maintenance steps you may want to add to your checklist:
1. Examine and clean out your gutters so they are ready to handle the upcoming rainy season.
2. Make sure your downspouts are secure and that they direct all water far away from your foundation.
3. Remove winter debris, including leaves and dead branches. Call in a professional to safely remove larger dead branches that can break off during storms.
4. Examine your home’s foundation for cracks once you’re past the last freeze of the season. If you see any issues, then call a professional to address them immediately.
5. The mild temperatures of spring offer a great opportunity to have HVAC systems inspected and maintained without inconvenience.
Last but not least, don’t hesitate to call a professional if you find something you can’t handle. This can save you money in the long run and protect your home from serious damage.
