At present, National Steel Car is one of the leading manufacturers of rail cars in Northern America and across the globe. The company started in 1912 and started as a flourishing business that went beyond the expectations of its investors and founders. The only setback that happened was when the Great Depression began in 1929 and took place most of the 1930s. At that time, the company was unable to secure large orders to defray the company’s monetary needs and meet the diversified requirements of existing and potential clients. In 1960, Dofasco, a steel mining firm located in Ontario bought National Steel Car.
Greg James Aziz is the present President, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of National Steel Car. He was schooled at Ridley College and took his Economics Degree from the Western Ontario University. Then he worked with the family’s business, Affiliated Foods in 1971. The family business is an international food importer of food from countries in South America, Central America and Europe, and has distributes the imported produce to major wholesale outlets located in Easter Canada and the whole of the United States.
Subsequent to working for their family venture, Gregory Aziz left for New York City and found employment with numerous banks in the city. When 1994 came, he purchased National Steel Car from its then current owner DOFASCO. After he acquired the company, Gregory Aziz found out that despite the excellent engineering skills present in the company it could only produce 3,500 cars in one year. Wanting to make National Steel Car a leading rail freight car in Northern America, he added more capital to get the company off the ground, and at the same time hired more employees.

By 1999, National Steel Car is already able to yield 12,000 cars yearly and the number of its workers grew from 600 to around 3,000. The excellent engineering ingenuity and innovative capabilities of National Steel Car has earned the ISO 9001:2008 certification and the TTX SECO award consistently.
Greg Aziz states that the ultimate assistance he and his company can give to the community of Hamilton and the surrounding areas is to consistently provide employment that has good pay and benefits. And to show gratitude for the community that has been with National Steel Car through the years, Greg Aziz and his family sponsors numerous local charities including the food drive activities of the local food banks within the vicinity of Hamilton, Ontario.
