National Steel Car is one of the world’s leading engineer and manufacturing company for railroad freight cars. It has its location in Hamilton in Ontario; Canada. The great accomplishment for the enterprise is also partly due to its current CEO, Chairman and President Greg Aziz. Greg James Aziz was born in London in the city of Ontario in Canada in the year 1949 in April. He attended the Ridley College in his country and later joined at the University of Western Ontario where he was able to gain focus in the study of economics.
At the age of 22 in the year 1971, Greg Aziz joined the Affiliated Foods Company; a wholesale food company which belonged to his family. In the period of sixteen years in the company, Greg Aziz assisted the company to grow and become a worldwide importer of fresh foods from Central, South America, and Europe and distributed the foods to major fresh food wholesale markets across Eastern Canada and the United States. He later left and went into getting jobs in different investment banks in New York City for around ten years.
In the year 1994, Greg Aziz made one of his greatest life-changing accomplishments by purchasing the National Steel Car Company from Dofasco. Greg Aziz had his primary aim set to transform the company from just one Canadian industry to a leading railroad freight car manufacturing company in North America. The company was able to transform through human and capital investment and team- building efforts to become a leading railroad freight car manufacturer. Among its greatest achievements, the company expanded its capabilities from manufacturing 3,500 cars per year to manufacturing 12,000 cars by the year 1999. It also increased employment from approximately 600 employees to an almost 3,000 employees. See This Page for more.
