Lashley & Associates was established in Houston in 1947 as one of the first manufacturers’ representatives in the nation, for heating, ventilation & air conditioning equipment.  Our company continues to provide preferred named HVAC products to our clientele in Houston as well as the Texas Gulf coasts.  Our business philosophy of being fair, ethical, and honest, continues to make us the favored supplier to our existing and potential customers as we maintain, “Shaping Business Through Partnership”.  I believe we should help each more and we should “pay it forward”, when we can.
