Not many years ago, the steel car production company National Steel Car was at risk of closing its doors. They had once been a very successful and profitable company, but they were no longer able to get those results. The company had taken a hit when the rail industry had seen changes due to a change in the way people shipped things and moved cargo around. Many companies had chosen to use the air industry instead of the freight industry to get things from place to place and that made many companies feel the problems with it.
When Greg Aziz purchased National Steel Car from Dofasco, he had no idea about anything in the rail industry. In fact, he had never even worked with a company that was related to the rail industry. Instead, he had worked with banks, corporations and big businesses that were all in Canada. He also worked for his family business Affiliated Foods, after graduating from Ridley College and later after joining Western University. Since National Steel Car was still a Canadian company, Gregory Aziz was confident he knew the way things could work for the business, but he had no idea of what it would take for him to get to the point where he would be able to make National Steel Car a profitable company.
Gregory James Aziz made it his mission to make National Steel Care better. He saw the value in the company even if it hadn’t been performing well in the past. He also saw it was a company that had a great infrastructure. He only had to change a few things to make sure it could be a profitable business. When he made these changes, it allowed him to make more money for the company. It also allowed him the chance to show people they would be able to get more from the industry if they were going to use his steel cars.
Despite things being difficult for the company when Greg Aziz first bought it, he knew it had potential. Gregory J Aziz worked tirelessly to help people realize they could actually enjoy everything the company had to offer. He showed other rail companies they could benefit from the steel cars he was producing. He worked so hard that he was actually able to make the company the best it could be. He chose to show people what they could get from the company in different areas despite missing out on some of the things that happened over the years when the company was doing poorly.
