Gregory James Aziz was born in Ontario, Canada in 1949, and by the time he was in his 20s he was working with his family’s wholesale food distribution company. He worked with Affiliated Foods until the company grew to the point where it was importing foods and goods from around the world, including Europe, Central America and South America. Then, he worked as an investor before getting together a group to purchase one of the largest producers of railroad cars in North America. Together with National Steel Car, Gregory James Aziz was able to push the limits of the railroading industry to bring this company into over 100 years of high quality, excellent performance.
In his welcome letter on National Steel Car’s website, Greg Aziz reminds readers to “honor the traditions of the past,” which is evident in his support of the railroading industry when he first joined the company. He has since brought great value to the company by increasing the production output nearly four times over. The production of railroad cars is still at an all-time high of 12,000 railroad cars produced each year, and this is reflected in the number of employees that bring home paychecks.

National Steel Car is able to support thousands of employees now that it remains the leader in manufacturing and engineering railroad cars. This information is available on National Steel Car’s website. The company lists the charities that it is involved in throughout Ontario and throughout the world. National Steel Car does more than create jobs in Ontario; the company builds a strong community through giving and support. This supportive nature is evident in the charitable contributions National Steel Car makes on an ongoing basis to charities. The company charities that National Steel Car is involved in include sponsorship roles in the local theatre and opera community in Hamilton, Ontario. Other charities include the United Way and Salvation Army.
Greg Aziz continues to provide support and guidance to National Steel Car. As for his charitable involvements, he and his wife are heavily involved in sponsoring one of Canada’s leading agriculture fairs, the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.
