Gregory James Aziz is the incumbent Chief Operating Officer, President, and Chairman of National Steel Car, one of the most successful rail freight car manufacturing companies across the globe. The company is headquartered in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
Greg James Aziz was born on April 30, 1949 in London, Ontario. He studied at Ridgely College and finished economics at the Western Ontario University. After he earned his degree, he served with his family’s food business that was engaged primarily in wholesale in 1971. The company his family owns was called Affiliated Foods, which over the course of 16 years flourished and grew as it became an international importer of fresh food staples from South America, Central America and Europe. The products it imports are distributed to key fresh food wholesale retailers all over Eastern Canada and in the United States.
After having been employed with numerous investment banks in New York City during the late 80s up to the early 90s, Greg James Aziz found means to arrange the acquisition of the National Steel Car in 1994 from Dofasco.
Greg Aziz’s goal in purchasing the said company was to modify the once reputable car company into a well-known rail and freight car producer. By relying on National Steel Car’s excellent engineering skill, team work, along with the additional capital and human investments, the company was able to expand its manufacturing capacity from 3,500 cars a year from the time of its purchase, to 12,000 cars when 1999 came. The number of employees also increased over that same time from 600 to around 3,000. See This Page for related information.
Currently, due to the perseverance and excellent quality of work done by the employees of National Steel Car, it is considered a leader in the new car innovation industry as it continues to produce thousands of railroad cars every year. National Steel Car is the sole railroad freight car company in North America that holds the ISO 9001:2008 certification and the TTX SECO award, for 18 consecutive years and since 1996 respectively. The certification and award are forms of recognition from outside organizations that proves National Steel Car is one of the best among its kind worldwide.
As Greg Aziz’s way of giving back for all the success his company attained, he and his family continue to support charitable social causes like the Salvation Army, the Hamilton Opera, the United Way, the Theatre Aquarius, and many other local charities drives around the Hamilton neighborhood.
