Gregory J Aziz was born in Ontario in 1949 and enrolled in Ridley College. He later attended the University of West Ontario where he majored in Economics. In 1971, he joined his family wholesale food company Affiliated Foods. He helped it grow to be one of the major importers of fresh foods from central and South American and European markets. He later took up several jobs at investment banks in New York from late 1980s to early 1990s. It was through the savings he got from these jobs that he was able to secure the purchase of National Steel Car in 1994 from the previous owner Dofasco. He had a goal of restoring the company into its former status as its performance had declined significantly. Under his leadership the company increased staff from 500 to 3000 and the production capacity from 3,500 to 12,500 railcars each year by 1999. He is dedicated to help the company maintain a reputable record as the number one manufacturer of freight and railcars. His dedication has also earned the company to win the ISO 90001:2008 and TTX SECO for more than 18 years. Refer to This Page.
