National Steel Car is a company that has risen from being a small manufacturing provider of rail cars to one of the leading rail freight car companies in the world. They are known far and wide for their reputation in safety, quality, and efficiency. The man responsible for this is Gregory James Aziz. He was the one who saw the potential of the company in the year 1994 when it was running as a meager manufacturer of freight cars.
Gregory J Aziz invested all of his time, his money, and his energy into National Steel Car knowing what it could be. After a lot of hard work and blood, sweat, and tears, Greg had taken National Steel Car and made it almost unrecognizable. By the year 1998, it was producing 12,500 cars a year. That number was up from a mere 3,500 a year in the year 1994.
With the need to produce more cars had come the need for more employees. This created many job opportunities for families needing work and by the year 1998, employment at the company ranged at around 3,000 people. This number was up from only 600 people employed in the year 1994. Greg Aziz knew his company was becoming a huge success and in this, he found great satisfaction. He enjoyed having a successful company, but Aziz found he could do even more with it to help others.
With his company, he began sponsoring places such as the Aquarius Theater and the Salvation Army. He enjoyed giving back to the community and still does so to this day. Some other charities he enjoys giving back to are the Hamilton Opera and the United Way. His company also takes part in a food drive each year. Greg and wife Irene reside in Canada and they have two daughters together. They all enjoy attending equestrian shows and Greg recently started sponsoring the Angelstone Tournaments of which his daughter, Karina, is always taking part in. He and his wife Irene are extremely supportive in their daughter’s equestrian goals. She competes successfully at the very highest level of the sport. See This Article for more information.
Greg and Irene also sponsor the Royal Agricultural Fair which is the biggest agricultural fair in Canada. Greg Aziz is an extremely successful businessman, but perhaps more important is that he is an outstanding citizen of society and a loving, committed family man. His good fortune in life and in business will follow him for years to come.
