How does someone build a grand company? What makes a company grand in the first place? There are many answers to both those questions, but one thing is definitely true: running a 100-year-old is not easy. Founded in 1912, National Steel Car is one of the largest manufacturers of railcars in North America.
National Steel’s remained at the top of the industry for all 100 years. A task made possible thanks to the technologically aware, innovative, passionate, and committed workforce that is National Steel Car. The company also focuses on fostering and maintaining good relationships with all of their customers and suppliers.
Currently, the driving force behind the company’s brilliance is Gregory. Gregory James Aziz is the CEO and has been since 1994. Since joining the company, he’s learned to value the efforts of the workforce more than his own efforts. This combined nicely with his already humble nature.
Aziz is not the type of man to overshadow people. He runs the company, but he’s more than happy to give credit to everyone else works there, visits, or supplies the company with something. His humbleness allows him to give up personal gain in favor of the greater good of the business.
Though his humble manners don’t allow him to brag, others brag about his behave. For past 13 years, Aziz’s leadership led National Steel Car to 13 consecutive TTX SECO awards. Companies only receive this award for producing high-quality products. His achievements speak for themselves.
On top of his award-winning achievements, he also pushes the company to be better. He doesn’t want his company to become stagnant or comfortable with being successful. He’s always raising the bar and improving efficiencies.
The most impressive thing that Aziz’s accomplished since joining the company is getting the company’s missed-deadlines count down to zero. He also made National Steel the only ISO certified company in North America. Now, he’s focused on leading the company into a brighter future filled with philanthropy.
The philanthropy that Gregory James Aziz is focused on only concerns the local community. The company’s been a part of the same community for over 100 years. Giving back to Hamilton, Ontario is very important. Firstly, National Steel Car employees over 2000 residents and participates in many of the territory’s food drives.
