Born on April 30, 1949, Gregory Aziz grew up to become an accomplished investor and businessman. He has worked for Affiliated Foods, on Wall Street, and is now the President, CEO, and owner of National Steel Car, a Canadian freight train car manufacturer.
Gregory James Aziz purchased the company in 1994 and immediately made changes to better the future of the company. He increased employment numbers and upped production. However, he also limited the variety of carts to be made by the company. National Steel Car was a more focused company with Aziz as its new owner. This meant they were able to focus on what companies needed and sell more product.
This helped in leading National Steel Car through an industry rut. When Gregory James Aziz purchased National Steel Car, he knew it would need substantial change to survive the failing industry. Aziz’s business decisions left National Steel Car as the industry leader once the crisis was over.
Prior to purchasing National Steel Car, Greg Aziz worked for Affiliated Foods, a company owned and operated by his family. As successful as he was working with his family, Aziz wanted more. He left the family business and moved to New York City to pursue investment banking.
Gregory James Aziz wasn’t gone for long. He made a small fortune in New York and moved back home to purchase a local business – National Steel Car. Click Here for more information.
Hiring local citizens at his factory isn’t the only way Gregory Aziz benefits the community. He and his company also host a year food drive. Along with his wife, Aziz also supports the annual Winter festival. Theatrical productions are also made possible at a few locations throughout the town. Greg Aziz is also a supporter of the United Way and the Salvation Army.
