James Aziz has been a prime fixture in the growth of National Steel Car during his time in leadership roles. To start, he is a huge believer in investing in human capital, as well as making the company an excellent place to work. During his time with National Steel Car, Greg has grown the employee base from around 800 people to over three thousand employees. This rapid growth brought a great deal of positive change to the Hamilton community. The influx of jobs was huge for the entire town and its local economy. It enabled many local businesses to open and thrive, which led to the addition of more jobs in the area. It is astounding to see one company bring about such a great deal of change.
National Steel Car is also a prime fixture in the Hamilton, Ontario community. James Aziz is an active philanthropist and he encourages the rest of his leadership team – and all employees in general – to give back to the community.
The company has many ways in which it supports the community through philanthropy and sponsorships. To start, National Steel Car holds a massive and elaborate holiday party to give back to employees. At the event, all employees – both past and present – are invited to attend. The employees families are also invited. Thousands of people show up to eat, drink and be merry and celebrate the holidays among friends. In fact, the event has become so large that it has transformed into a massive town gathering due to the fact that so many people have worked at National Steel Car throughout the years.

Additionally, the company supports many local institutions and charities. The leadership believes in giving back to the community in a variety of ways. First, National Steel Car hosts a massive food drive every year around the Thanksgiving holiday. The food drive is absolutely massive and all employees and the leadership team pitch to donate canned good and boxed goods to the food drive. The food drive is then given to local food banks. For many food banks, it is one of the biggest donations that they will receive all year long. National Steel Car also supports many local institutions. This includes the local branch of United Way, the local chapter of the Salvation Army and the local Hamilton Theatre.
