Mr. Gregory Aziz Rebuilds National Steel Car Into An Industry Leader

National Steel Car is a leading manufacturer of premium railroad freight cars that proudly services all of North America. Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, National Steel Car has become the world’s greatest engineers of state-of-the-art freight cars as well as railcar components since 1912. The company was acquired by CEO and chairman Gregory James Aziz in 1994. By the early 2000’s, Greg Aziz had expanded the entire operation to include thousands of more workers and increased its manufacturing capacity from 3,500 railcars per year to 12,000 railcars.

As the new owner of National Steel Car, Greg James Aziz has shown his appreciation for the productivity and excellence his employees have consistently exuded time and time again. He is known to give back to the Hamilton, Ontario, community where most of his employees reside and has donated and sponsored numerous local businesses, charities and organizations since joining the company.

Gregory J. Aziz was born and raised in London, Ontario, Canada. He received his education at the University of Western Ontario and majored in economics. His family owned and operated a wholesale food business that ended up becoming one of North America’s main importers of fresh foods from Central America, South America and Europe. In 1971, Gregory J Aziz worked alongside his parents’ wholesale food business until he jetted off to New York, NY, to pursue several investment banking endeavors during the late eighties.

When ArcelorMittal Dofasco, a huge Canadian integrated steel manufacturer, decided to sell National Steel Car, Greg Aziz envisioned that he could transform the company to become one of the largest producers of high quality railcars. Greg Aziz immediately bought the 100-year-old company and the rest is history.


For more than a hundred years, National Steel Car has been committed to excellence and provided high quality products and services. It is the only railroad freight car manufacturing company in the world to have received the ISO 9001:2015 certification for its quality services. For more than ten years straight, National Steel Car has been honored with the highly coveted TTX SECO award.


The company recently announced that it supports the North American harmonized regulations to develop next-gen rail tank cars that are safer to transport flammable liquids in the United States. The Canadian and American government have both harmonized their safety regulations and National Steel Car will commit towards keeping the entire North American railway system safe and secure as possible.  Visit This Page for additional information.
