Gregory J Aziz was born in Ontario, London. He went to the University of Western Ontario and majored in Economics, after graduating from Ridley College. Greg is now the CEO, manager and also president of National Steel Car.
National Steel Car is one of the oldest manufacturing companies. It is over 100 years old in manufacturing and engineering railroad freight cars. Furthermore, NSC is a company that has grown from a humble background, and become one of the greatest companies worldwide. It is one of the leading engineers and producers of freight cars.
Greg Aziz bought NSC from Dofasco in 1994. He was then working in New York as an investment banker. He had been in this field of Economy for over eight years, and he liked it because he had specialized in the area while at the university. This made him an expert. However, Gregory James Aziz felt a lacking. His urge was to own a company. Working with investment banking opportunities was not giving him any guarantee. Therefore, when he felt ready, he went ahead to buy NSC from Dofasco and thus fulfill his dream.
Greg Aziz wished to make National Steel Car into a prominent company in North America. Its former status as a Canadian manufacturing company was not enough. He, therefore, worked towards his dream. He began by ensuring that he had addressed the challenge that initially faced the company, which was meager workforce. This alone brought the production rate down.
After two years, National Steel Car was able to win the TTX SECO award (1996). Getting motivated by this, it thrived to garner several more awards. Surely, for about ten more consecutive years, National Steel Car kept winning the annual award.
In 1999, the company recorded an increase of employment rate to 3,000. The number of cars manufactured yearly rose to 12,000. These two changes marked five times and four times increases respectively. Find More Information Here.
Today, National Steel Car still leads in North America in manufacturing freight cars. It also produces the latest cars and continues to build railroads all over the region.
The company having love for the Hamilton community and its workers holds a party every end-year.
