There are many things to be said about the company, National Steel Car, and its Chief Executive Officer and President Gregory James Aziz. National Steel Car is a leader in rail car innovation and has been recognized as one of the top leading rail car companies in the world. The success of the company can be attributed to Greg and his hard working and dedicated employees. They have all done their part in helping the company rise to success since Greg’s purchase of the company in 1994, from its then owner DOFASCO.
When National Steel Car first started out, it was barely producing 3,500 railroad cars a year. That is so few that it required very few employees to be at the warehouse manning the production lines daily. In fact, only around 600 employees were receiving steady work from the company at that time. By the year 1998, Greg had taken that number and raised it to over 3,000. This was a huge accomplishment as it gave many people a job and way to put food their tables for their families. Greg felt accomplished, but still something was missing.
He began to sponsor companies with National Steel Car such as the Hamilton Opera and the Salvation Army. He enjoyed helping others. Everyone that knew Gregory Aziz knew he was an outstanding citizen and looked to him as a role model. His employees enjoyed their job working at his company stating that they appreciated being treated fair and that the pay was just.
Gregory James Aziz is always looking for new ways to improve his cars that were being distributed and always looking for new ways to make the consumer happy. National Steel Car is known today for the quality of cars it produces and has met top safety standards.
The company is inspected frequently ensuring it maintains these standards. Greg oversees the operation of the company, ensuring it never falls below, what he believes, is the minimum standard of safety and quality. He is a busy man because of this but he still makes time to spend with wife, Irene, and his two daughters, Natalia and Karina. All four of them enjoy spending time in the outdoors attending equestrian shows. Karina is an avid competitor, competing at the highest level possible in the sport. Greg and his wife Irene also sponsor Canada’s Royal Agricultural Fair. It is believed to be the biggest and most prominent agricultural fair in Canada. Get More Information Here.
