National Steel Car is the largest manufacturer of railway cars in Canada. It is based in Hamilton, Ontario and the current CEO/Chairman is Gregory James Aziz, who has a degree in economics from Western University. This company was created in 1912 and has been in the top 3 manufacturers of railway cars in Canada the entire time it’s been around. When the company was first created, it had several different investors supporting it and its creation of products went way beyond what the investors expected. In 1913, the company decided they would exclusively product railway cars and since their timing was just right, they received many orders from different railways. They did very well until the time right before the Great Depression because they didn’t have many orders. Because of this, they started producing things such as motor trucks and motor boats just, so they had some orders. Around World War 2, business picked back up and they have been doing well since.
In 1994, it was sold to a company named National Industries, Inc, which is the business of Greg Aziz. By 2000, he expanded the employees from just 500 to 3,000. He also increased how much the company could produce from 3,5000 to 12,5000 railway cars per year. Since James Aziz has been the CEO, this company has received TTX SECO awards every year for 13 years. Under his leadership, the company doesn’t focus just on past accomplishments, but also future accomplishments. In addition, the company has been working with the community to make people’s lives better. Not only is it a part of many of the food drives and provided over 2000 people from the community jobs, but it has also sponsored the Hamilton Opera and the Theater Aquarius. These are just a few of the charities they have helped.
Before he worked at National Steel Car, James Aziz worked at his family business that was a wholesale food business. The name was Affiliated Foods. After that, he moved to New York because he wanted to try working in the investment banking world. This lasted for many years.
As you can see, Greg James Aziz is focused on not only bringing a top product, but also helping the community he lives in. He will continue helping out his community and bringing the best product his company possibly can as long as the company stays under him. He is a great and compassionate leader that has the communities best interest at heart.
