Mr. Railing Man came about when Salvatore Lombardo emigrated from Solarino Sicily. He started a business named Sal's Iron works in 1973 and has been in business ever since. Tristate knew Sal as the railing man. Hence the name, Mr. Railing Man. Many established iron work companies have been taught by Sal right from his shop and have went on for very successful careers. His son Paul had a vision to build a brand around Sal's expertise, work ethic and personality.
