National Steel Car, along with its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. James Aziz, continues the time honored long tradition of investing in its community, staff and environment. They are one hundred percent committed to not only outranking themselves as third in production of assembly and standards but also to the high standards of fabrication.
National Steel Car is the only rail car manufacturing company to have their ISO 9001:2008 certifications in the whole of North America. They are one of the leading and largest sources of jobs in the Ontario area of Canada and operate with over 3,500 hardworking employees who are excited to produce the highest quality rail car materials and products in the trade.

Mr. Aziz was born in London, Ontario on April 30th, 1949. He earned his business certifications from the University of Western Ontario graduating exceptionally well. Aziz has a vast acumen and understanding in the capital investment industry as well as the industrial rail car production trade. Greg Aziz had great success in the banking industry and amassed the wealth that was required to purchase National Steel Car in the 1980s from its then owner, Dominion Foundries and Steel, also known as Dofasco. At the time, under their current management and administration, the company was struggling. After Aziz acquired it, he was remarkably able to increase the company’s finances and manufacturing of products through redefining their business model and focusing on the manufacturing of freight vehicles.
This proved to be a lucrative decision for National Steel Car and as a result, they continue to invest in state-of-the-art manufacturing lines with the most innovative equipment applications. This includes robotics mechanisms that take the amount of time it takes to produce material to a whole new level. Gregory Aziz’s philanthropic works also precede his career with investment in his community’s local food banks, so that his community’s needs are generously met.
