Doing Business with Gregory James Aziz

National Steel Car, the company that provides the best railroad freight car manufacturing and engineering, is headed by none other than Greg James Aziz. He is the Chairman, President & CEO of the company. Just by the titles alone, you would know that Greg is a very successful man. But what can we learn about Greg? Perhaps if we first look at his roots, we would get an idea of what makes a successful CEO of a successful company.

Greg J Aziz was born in London on April 30, 1949. He went to University of Western Ontario where he took economics as a major. Having a business mind even from his early years, he joined his family’s wholesale business, called Affiliated Foods, which became a major company that distributed foods from Europe across the Americas.

 

Greg found himself In New York in the 80s and the 90s where he tried his hands-on investment banking, and in 1994 he was able to purchase the National Steel Car company. Since then, the manufacturing capability of the company grew from 3,500 cars per year to 12,000, in a span of only five years. And with 600 to 3,000 employment growth.

The truth is, before the leadership of Greg Aziz, the company was not doing that well. If the business model of the enterprise weren’t going to be changed, today the leader of the industry would be another brand. Because of the downfall of National Steel Car at the time, the group was losing their customers.

 

However, the experience that Greg Aziz acquired from his years working with the business of his family, Affiliated Foods, and the education that he received at the University, were major components that allowed him to turn the table and restore the reputation of a company with more than half a century of experience.

 

Now with over 100 years of experience and having received consistent year awards for its excellence. Greg’s National Steel Car is the leading company in North America when it comes to manufacturing railroad freight cars. It has held that spot for the last 18 years now, and it doesn’t seem like they’re ready to give up their place on the top.

 

Greg isn’t only a successful businessman. He and his wife are also philanthropists who sponsor the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair among many other causes. He and his families also regularly attend the National Steel Car’s Christmas Party to contribute to the company’s food drive for local communities.
