National Steel Car is one of the single most trusted and financially successful freight car manufacturers in all of North America. Such continuous corporate success naturally engenders a great deal of curiosity as to how such a company has maintained its spot at the top for so long. One of the reasons for this, of many, has been the leadership of the company’s longstanding president, chairman and CEO (chief executive officer), Gregory James Aziz, more commonly referred to simply as Greg Aziz. One of Gregory J Aziz’s greatest strengths in long tenure as CEO of National Steel Car has been his tremendous experience in the industry (he has worked at National Steel Car for nearly two decades, starting his career there in 1994) as well as his unrelenting commitment to high quality products and customer service. Not only does Mr. Aziz have a long and storied history of work experience in the engineering and manufacturing industry, he also has a great deal of other business experience, having previously worked as a wholesale foods retailer as well as a New York based investment banker.

Under Mr. Aziz’s purview National Steel Car has, for 13 years straight, been the recipient of the highly prized TTX SECO award for excellence in manufacturing which are only given out to a very select few companies every year who meet the company’s numerous and strict standards for industry excellence.
One top of all of that Greg Aziz still finds time to venture into philanthropic work, such as the Ontario Food Drive. He also helps fund the local arts scene in Ontario and regularly backs and aids the well-known Hamilton Opera house as well as the Theater Aquarius. One might think that running a massive rail car manufacturing company and participating in countless philanthropic ventures would eat up all of his spare time and, yet he is also a family man who, with his wife of many years, Irene, has raised two daughters, Karina and Natalie. If there is one thing Mr. Aziz’s career has shown it is that the American Dream is not just a dream but a real and present reality.
