Gregory J Aziz was born in London, Ontario on April 30, 1949. Greg studied at Ridley College then later graduated from the University of Western Ontario majoring in Economics.
As a graduate, Greg Aziz joined his family’s food business, Affiliated Foods, in 1971. Over the course of 16 years the family business grew to become a global importer of fresh foods with distribution to all of the major fresh food markets across the continents.
Taking great inspiration from his family’s business, Greg was sure he wanted to build something for himself as well.
After some work experience and several bank investment opportunities, Gregory was able to take over and purchase National Steel Car from Dofasco in 1994. Gregory’s vision was to transform that once Canadian company into North America’s prime rail road manufacturer.
Over the course of strong team building and engineering capabilities as well as plenty of worthy investments, National Steel Car expanded its manufacturing potential from 3,500 cars per year to ravishing 12,000 cars all by 1999. Employment over those short five years grew drastically as well. From 600 workers to approximately 3,000 in only a few years.
