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.

Winter’s here, and you are probably thankful for your heating system every time you look at the forecast. Don’t forget, however, that you still need to maintain your system during the winter. Here are a few steps to help you get started:
Don’t forget the filters
Sometimes people neglect their filters in the winter, but changing your filter is an important all year long. So change your filters just as often during the winter months as you do during the summer.
Listen to your system
Turn everything off and listen to your system as it kicks in and turns off. A rattle, hum, or other unusual sound might signify a problem. While you’re at it, feel the air coming out of your vents. It should be fairly equal from room to room.
Check your outdoor unit
Hopefully you winterized your unit before the winter, but you should check your outdoor unit throughout the season. Keep it free of ice, yard debris, and anything else that might restrict airflow and cause problems.
Of course, if you happen to get caught in the cold and need help getting your system back up and running, feel free to give us a call!
