National Steel Car, the leading railcar tank manufacturer from Canada, is known for technology innovation and highest standard safety measures in the railcar industry. It was due to persistent efforts of its Chairman, Gregory Aziz, the firm achieved the top-notch position in the industry. Interestingly, it is now helping the railcar firm to get large contracts from industries and business groups. In the latest development, Canpotex, a leading potash exporter from Canada, chose National Steel Car to supply new 700 railcars that are specifically designed to meet the needs of potash transport and export. It is revealed that the contract is worth nearly $70 million.
The potash exporter has invested more than $500 million since 1999 to make over 7,000 railcars and all of them with National Steel Car. The railcars for Canpotex are custom designed by the railcar maker to address many challenges. National Steel Car confirms that the special design allows the potash exporter to optimize the per railcar tonnage capacity in addition to the added railcars per train. While the new railcars improve the efficiency of transport over 90%, it also significantly reduces the greenhouse emissions in the respective rail corridors it travels. Gregory J Aziz confirmed that the strong relationship with Canpotex helped the firm to improve its service delivery and market presence.
It should be noted that National Steel Car has more than 100 years of engineering innovation in railcar industry. However, its fate changed when Gregory J Aziz bought the firm in 1994 with a mission to make it the market leader in North America. He gave stress to engineering capabilities, safety measures, team-building, quality initiatives, technology innovation, and more, and took it to the pole position within five years.
