About us

Nieves Longordo

When Mr. Tony Martinez decided to “open up shop” over 40 years ago in a small garage in Southwest Detroit little did he know of the great legacy he was already inscribing in the heart of Mexicantown for decades to come.  After many successful years in great business, Mr. Martinez decided it was time to retire and hand over the baton to his daughter Nieves.  Nieves had been in the business a few years, overseeing and preparing for the next move. In 2010 Nieves Arzola became the new president and owner of Diseños Ornamental Iron.  Although Mr. Martinez was no longer the president, he still kept around for an additional three years while the company made this life changing transition.  Finally in 2013 Tony Martinez said farewell to Diseños Ornamental Iron to enjoy his retirement. Since then, we are adjusting to Ms. Arzola’s new name: Mrs. Nieves Longordo.
