National Steel Car is one of the most competitive car manufacturing industries in the world today. Under the leadership of Gregory J Aziz, the National Steel Car has produced a good number of products that have given other companies a good competition. Currently, the company has its focus on freight car components. Other than just the manufacture of cars and components, the company is dedicated to providing services to the community.
The background of Gregory James Aziz
Born in 1949, Gregory Aziz spent most of his childhood in Ontario, Canada. This was the same place of his birth. At the prime of his life, James Aziz joined Ridley College for his college education. Later, Gregory undertook his undergraduate degree in Economics at the University of Western Ontario. After his graduation, Gregory Aziz joined his family in their food business. By the time he was joining the business, the main focus of the family was to provide services to the areas around. With his input, the food business which was run by the family went global. The services offered were extended to Europe and the entire United States.
The growth of personal career
In the early 1980s, James Aziz moved to the United States in search of greener pastures. Here, he was considered for a variety of jobs, especially in the baking area. Because of his background in Economics, James Aziz was in charge of planning and critical development of the companies for which he worked. After a long period of working in the banking sector, Greg Aziz landed a major position at the National Steel Car. His position in this company did not come as formal means, but it was a result of his input in the purchase of the company. National Steel Car was bought from Dofasco in 1994 where Greg James Aziz was appointed as the president.
In this year, the company had about 600 employees. Through the dedication and hard work of the management under the leadership of Aziz, the work force grew to more than 4000 employees 16 years later. In a normal company, it takes ages to make such an improvement within the given time. Furthermore, in 1994, National Steel Car could only make up to 3000 vehicles in a good year. Gregory Aziz changed this system in five years, and by 1999, the company was already in a position to produce over 12000 cars in a year.
