Greg Aziz’s Staunch Leadership With National Steel Car
Gregory James Aziz is the CEO, President and Chairman of National Steel Car. Unlike what the name hints at, National Steel Car is not a vehicle company. It’s actually a freight train engineering and manufacturing company. National Steel Car is located in Hamilton, Ontario.
Greg Aziz is a native of London, Ontario. He majored in economics at the University of Western Ontario. In 1971, he joined his family wholesale foods company, Affiliated Foods. While Greg was there, the company grew international over the next 16 years. Greg J. Aziz’s leadership was in part thanks to his many successful investment banking opportunities in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. By 1994, he was able to organize the purchase of National Steel Car.
Almost immediately after Greg started to work with National Steel Car Company, he turned it from a top Canadian company into North America’s leading freight manufacturer. During that time, National Steel Car expanded its manufacturing production from just over 3,5000 freight cars annually to over 12,000 annually by the turn of the century. National Steel Car had only about 600 employees at the time that Gregory J Aziz started. Since then, it has grown to approximately 3,000.
To this day, National Steel Car remains the only ISO-certified railroad company. They have consistently won the TTX SECO award since 1996. They also sponsor different charity organizations such as The Salvation Army, United Way, and Aquarius Theatre. Greg and his wife personally sponsor the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.

Aside from National Steel Car, Greg also serves as CEO at National Industries Inc. National Industries also manufactures freight cars in North America. It has been in business since 1912 and is located in Hamilton, Canada.
Greg Aziz never gives up. He is the type of person who only focuses on his vision and does not seem to focus much on setbacks. He is not the of person who is satisfied at only a little success. He never thinks anything but big and he never stops until the goals are reached. As long as he remains the leader of National Steel Cars, the future looks very bright for both Greg and the company.
