The Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Steel Car, Gregory James Aziz continuously aims to maintain his company’s reputation as one of the world’s forerunner in railroad freight car engineering and manufacturing industries. National Steel Car, with over 100 years of service to its customers, is situated in Hamilton Ontario.
Born on April 30, 1949, Gregory J Aziz grew up in London Ontario and had his first few years of education at Ridley College. The man then earned his Major in Economics at the University of Western Ontario. James Aziz belonged to a family who owned Affiliated Foods which gave him early experience with businesses. Affiliated Foods catered to selling wholesale fresh food items from Europe, Central and South America for over 16 years.
After entering into several investment banking commitments in New York from the late 1980s to early 1990s, Greg acquired National Steel Car in 1994 from its former owner, Dofasco. Even before, the company already had a reputation as a known Canadian company. As a businessman, Greg envisioned to make his company one of the most well-known car manufacturers in North America.
National Steel Car firmly claims its foundation is rooted with their people. In North America, National Steel Car is the only railcar company who has earned a certification of ISO 9001:2008. From 3,500 cars per year in 1994, the company has increased its production to 12,000 cars per year in 1995. Even up to this year, the staff continuously challenges themselves to make sure that constant improvement is put into priority. From only having 600 employees, National Steel Car now has almost 3,000 workers. In addition, the company is a consistent recipient of the annual TTX SECO award for over a decade. National Steel Car has earned its reputation of being a team who provides superior quality railcars partnered with highly on time delivery and performance.
Putting aside National Steel Car’s well-known standing in the business arena, the company has been a consistent source of support for local charities. In addition, the company has extended help for Theatre Aquarius, Hamilton Opera, United Way and Salvation Army. Together with his loving wife, Greg also supports the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, a recognized agricultural fair in Canada.
Listing all the outstanding and excellent achievements of National Steel Car, it is only appropriate to claim that the company owes this feat to its forerunner, Gregory James Aziz.
