January 2021 – Customer of the Month
Decker & Mattison is one of the most successful, long-standing businesses that has originated in Hutchinson. It was started by Ed Mattison and Ruben Decker in 1930, and is currently owned by Ed’s grandson Brett Mattison. In 2021, they are planning to pass the ownership down to Christopher and Jake Mattison, making it a 4th generation family owned business!
In their teen years, both Ed and Ruben worked at Hopkins and Young Hardware Co. – a hardware and sheet metal business here in Hutchinson. In 1930, Ed and Ruben decided to join forces and purchase the business. Both young men were just 17 at the time! The name changed to Decker & Mattison Co., and became a heating and sheet metal business. Since then, they became a dealer/distributer for heating and air conditioning equipment and related supplies.
Decker & Mattison Co. purchased the first contractor license issued by the City of Hutchinson, and will always have the License #M001! They also installed the first air conditioner in Hutchinson in 1934 at the Landmark Hotel. Their service area has expanded to the area between Newton and the Colorado border.
They are committed to continually finding ways to improve their installation, service, and sheet metal departments. Through this commitment, they’ve maintained a reputation of quality service and products for over 80 years!
