Gregory James Aziz certainly had success on his mind as he led National Steel Car to become the premier railroad freight and tank car manufacturer in North America. Just as important, Greg Aziz knows the value of the people who work for the company and the community in which they thrive.
Greg Aziz worked hard in his family’s business for years before purchasing National Steel Car in 1994. The sense of pride he felt knowing that his family was helping to employ so many people throughout the world stayed with Greg when he acquired the railroad freight and tank car manufacturing business.
With an already long history behind the company, Greg Aziz knew that structuring the company into an even more diverse, advanced, and values-driven force would benefit its workforce and community in Hamilton, Ontario. Soon the company had grown from around 600 to almost 3,000 employees in the first five years of buying the business.
Greg James Aziz soon began exploring numerous ways to give back to Hamilton. Through National Steel Car, Greg has sponsored Theatre Aquarius, the Hamilton Opera, the United Way, the Salvation Army and many other local charities. He has encouraged the employees of the company to spend time giving back to Hamilton during the Christmas season in National Steel Car’s significant food drive for local food banks.
Remembering his time with his family’s wholesale food business, Affiliated Foods, Greg and his wife Irene are personal sponsors of Canada’s world-famous agricultural fair. The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. The fair is the is the home to the largest united indoor agricultural fair and international equestrian competition in the world. Hundreds of thousands of attendees from all over come to the fair to sample local foods, compete, and have a fun time with friends and family.
Already a success, National Steel Car and Greg James Aziz plan to keep moving forward with the community in mind. Greg knows that with a strong and proud community backing National Steel Car, the company and its employees will know no bounds of success as they progress into the future together.
