Aleda and Bill Posladek are the founders of A.B. May. They purchased May Furnace Company in 1959. They renamed it A.B. May (“A” for Aleda and “B” for Bill) and set out to offer Kansas City comfort and top quality service with a few employees and four trucks. The first ten years saw many changes. We moved three times, starting in a modest building at 43 rd and Woodland, growing into a former Waldo Post Office building, and eventually building in Leawood near I-435 and State Line, where we operated for 42 years.
Along with location changes, we have also changed our services over the years. We have expanded
to offer Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Electrical, and Appliance repair services. In the mid-1970’s we
pioneered one of the first homeowner warranties in the industry. Today, we provide peace of mind
to tens of thousands of Kansas City homeowners through our Home Warranties for home buyers
and our Homeowner Gold, Silver, and Bronze Peace of Mind agreements.
In the nearly 60 years since our business began, we have grown to employ more than 275 people. We moved again in 2014 to an award-winning space off of I-435 near the Sports Complex. Our new building, over six times larger than our previous headquarters, is much better suited to serving the needs of our co-workers and our customers.
Our family has grown over the years as well. Three generations of Posladeks have now worked together to earn trust from thousands of homeowners in the metro area.
