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.

It’s hard to say goodbye to summer, but fortunately there is plenty of time to get ready so that you can enjoy a cozy winter, no matter what Mother Nature has in store.
Here are some steps you can take now before the cold sets in.
Clean the chimney
If you have a fireplace, schedule a chimney inspection and cleaning before the first fire is made. This one is best left to experts, so schedule it soon because this is their busy season.
Turn off the water
Drain your hoses to store them inside. Next, turn off the water to any outdoor spigot and insulate them. You should also insulate inside pipes that are near outside walls, in the basement, or other cold areas.
Seal the house
Take a look around every entrance and seal every gap you see because even small gaps can create drafts. Most hardware stores have weather-proofing kits that can make this an easier process.
Don’t forget, if you’re not sure how to do something, call a pro for help – there’s just too much at stake
