The National Steel Car brand looked to have followed many industry leaders in various sectors who have failed to move with the times and take on the highest level of development for the various technologies that are moving the world forward with the “Internet of things”. In 1994, the stock of National Car Steel began its current upward trend when Gregory James Aziz set out to purchase the company and rebuild it to the success it had been during its early years after establishment in 1912; one of the most colorful business figures in North America, Greg J Aziz has overseen a complete turnaround in the fortunes of the brand as it has embraced the latest technology available to become an industry leader once again in the creation of rolling stock for freight railroad manufacturers.
National Steel Car has continued to develop its brand with a move toward placing quality and technological advancement at the heart of the work being completed by design and construction employees. The development of the National Steel Car company has moved apace in recent years with the awarding of many technological standards certificates and awards over recent years, including the TTX SECO award given for achieving the highest quality possible in manufacturing and construction sectors; the award was first given to National Car Steel two years after Gregory J Aziz purchased the company and began to move it’s towards becoming one of the great freight railroad stock manufacturers once again. If holding on to the TTX SECO for more than 20 years was not impressive enough, the awarding of the ISO 9001:2008 industrial standard solidified the reputation of National Car Steel and James Aziz as leaders in the growing industrial area of freight railroad production.
Greg Aziz has never shied away from a challenge and took his education seriously at Ridley College and the University of Western Ontario as the London, Ontario native planned to return to the Aziz family business of Affiliated Foods. After returning to the fresh foods importer, Gregory J Aziz turned the family company into the leading distributor of imported fresh foods in North America. A successful financial career followed for James Aziz as he made his way to the U.S. markets and continued to find success before finding his natural home at National Car Steel.
