Standard Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning has been a part of the Manhattan community for nearly 100 years. We first opened our locally owned business in 1923. Back then, Manhattan’s population was around 8,000 people.

Our wonderful town and region of Kansas has grown quite a bit since then. Our company has adapted and grown just like the town of Manhattan has.
