Gregory Aziz is a prominent businessman in the United States and a leading player in the development of the engineering and manufacturing industry for the last couple of decades. Greg is the President and CEO of the National Steel car, a leading business in the world. This company deals with manufacturing of railroad freight cars. Greg has been in the business industry since the 1970s when he graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a degree in economics. When he came into the industry, he was doing very well and even managed to resuscitate a number of businesses he has worked for.
His prowess in the management of businesses was portrayed when he worked in a family owned food business known as Affiliate Foods. When he joined this business, it was just a small wholesale establishment that was selling food products to the local market in Ontario. However, with the entry of Greg Aziz, things took a different turn. Gregory James Aziz brought new ideas which changed the manner in which the business was operating, and after two decades, Affiliated Foods had become the biggest importer and supplier of food products in Canada and parts of the United States.
After working in the food industry and showing his abilities, he moved to the investment industry where he would work as an investment adviser. Since he held a degree in economics, his new venture was not a problem for him. He advised many investors on some of the investment opportunities which were available and which they should take. It is while working as an investment adviser that he also got an opportunity to invest in a company that he saw as a huge investment opportunity. The company was National Steel Car. This company was being put on sale by Dofasco who was running it at the time.
National Steel Car was a dying business when Greg bought it. Its production capacity was too low, and he could not afford to manage its operation effectively under such conditions. Gregory James Aziz was however confident that if he bought the company, he could make it the biggest business in the world. As an economist, he believed that he had whatever it takes to start a business and make it successful. Fast forward two decades later, NSC is the biggest manufacturing and engineering company in North America. It is now producing over 12,000 railroad freight cars every year all the way down from 2,500 cars when he took over the management.
