Greg Aziz was born in April 1949 in London, Ontario. He was privileged to acquire education at a young age, and together with this, was the acquisition of industrial experience due to exposure and passion.
Gregory James Aziz went to Ridley College and later, the University of Western Ontario. He had the passion for the economic sector, so he pursued Economics while at the University. Greg acquired his industrial experience through exposure. He joined his family’s company in 1971. While at Affiliated Foods, he learned a few skills which were later to aid his leadership and running of his current company.
James Aziz gained more experience as he worked in New York with investment banking opportunities. He became better at what he did, and his passion for economics just blossomed. The urge to run his own company grew in him, so Gregory J Aziz started acquiring enough wealth to make a business purchase. He became settled and ready in 1994 and went ahead to buy National Steel Car from Dofasco.
The Canadian company, which later came to be the North American leading railcar company, otherwise known as the North American pride, was not doing so well initially. But despite the challenges, Greg James Aziz had a vision and a mission to stretch the company’s bounds to the whole of North America and to offer blue-chip services all over the world.
Because of his expert managerial skills, Greg was able to achieve this within two years of his administration, and by 1996, the company had won the TTX SECO award. Another three years later, the rate of production increased remarkably and this positively affected the progress of both the company and also the Hamilton community, since there was an influx of job opportunities because the company needed a lot of labor force.
National Steel Car is the leader currently in manufacturing the latest cars. The company is also building several railroads. For the satisfactory progress shown over the years, it is not a surprise that National Steel Car is proudly the only North American railcar company to achieve the certification, ISO 9001:2008. The company has won it for over 18 years and is still showing promises. See This Article for related information.
NSC under Greg is not only a company but a life changer. It not only serves the Hamilton community but the rest of the world as well. It holds Christmas celebrations every year, and NSC usually invites the company’s employees and their families.
