The National Steel Car company headquartered in Ontario, Canada has been a giant of the freight railroad industry in North America since it was founded in 1912 and hopes to continue to drive onward towards even greater success in the future. Chairman, President, and CEO of National Steel Car, Gregory James Aziz has been seeking new ways of driving the company forward in the future but also hopes to keep the company grounded in the history it has developed over more than a century in operation in Canada and the U.S.
National Steel Car has achieved a great deal of success under the leadership of Gregory J Aziz as he has led the Canadian company to achieve a number of awards to reward the railroad business for its consistency and success. Under the leadership of Greg Aziz the company has become the first and only North American freight railroad manufacturer to be awarded the ISO 9001:2008 certification; since 1994 Gregory J Aziz has been leading the National Steel Car brand and overseen the company being rewarded with the TTX SECO quality award each year since 1996.
Greg Aziz has been moving towards a career in economics and business since attending Ridley College and the University of Western Ontario. The Canadian born business leader has been building one of the most successful careers in North American retail and manufacturing since the early 1970s when he gained his first managerial position with Affiliated Foods in 1971; as a member of this family business, James Aziz oversaw the development of the company into one of the leading North American importers of fresh foods from other regions of the world.
Gregory James Aziz saw the opportunity to extend his career and moved from his family’s Affiliated Foods business and headed to the U.S. to take on a number of roles within the banking and investment institutions of Wall Street. After brokering the deal that transferred control of National Steel Car into the hands of Greg Aziz the business leader has seen the manufacturing side of the company rise to the production of more than 12,000 cars per year by 1999 and employment levels increase fivefold.
