Railroad vehicle manufacturing is a highly competitive and demanding industry. Unable to cope with the ever-increasing challenges, a large number of the companies which used to thrive are now past their days of glory, with others already sunk into non-existence. It is, therefore, no mean feat for National Steel Car’s Chairman and CEO, Gregory James Aziz, to not only keep the company at the top of the industry but also to lead it into even more heights.
A History of Excellence
Founded in 1912, National Steel Car Company has seen more than a century of existence. It has, within that time, built a reputation as the best rolling stock company not only in Canada but also in North America. Some of the company’s clients include Canadian Pacific Railways, Norfolk Southern Railway, Lafarge, Canadian National Railways, Union Pacific, Shell Canada, Ontario Northland Railway and Nova Chemicals.
Dedication to Quality
There are many reasons explaining the company’s great respect in the railroad tank and freight car manufacturing industry. The main one includes its leadership’s dedication to quality in all its engineering and manufacturing pursuits. Led by Gregory J Aziz, it has one of the most talented, skilled and experienced workforce in the field of railcar production. It has, as a result, won the TTX SECO award every year for more than ten years. In addition, it is the only company in North American railcar manufacturing to bag the ISO 9001:2008 certification.
A Promising Future
Like any other industry, the needs of the customers in railroad car design and production are always evolving. It is the work of Greg Aziz to ensure that the company fulfills the ever-changing needs of the company’s clients. He, therefore, knows that he must give an attentive ear to the customers’ voice in order to give them exactly what they want. However, he cannot do it alone; his 2,000-strong team of employees together with the company’s suppliers helps greatly in ensuring that nothing short of excellence and quality is delivered to the clients. In the end, the company can bank on the loyalty and trust of its clients not only in the present but also in the future.
With more than a century of success, it is easy for corporate leaders to relax. James Aziz, however, while proud of past achievements does not dwell too much in them. Together with his team at the Ontario-based company, he is always tirelessly working to deliver even better, more advanced railroad freight and tank cars designed and made to meet customers’ needs.
