His contributions in the engineering and manufacturing sector in North America is something worth writing about. Greg Aziz is not your ordinary entrepreneur. He is super talented in turning operations of a company around. Greg Aziz is the key pillar behind the resurgence of the oldest corporation in the country known as National Steel Car Limited. This is a corporation that has been operational for more than 100 years. Since it was established in 1912, it has continued to serve the people of North America with dedication and commitment.
How did Gregory J Aziz become the leader of this cooperation with such a long history? To start, of let us look at his origin. Gregory Aziz is a Canadian born in Ontario. He attended the local school in Canada that include; Ridley College and University of Western Ontario. He is a holder of an economics degree. Greg graduated from Western Ontario in 1971 and started another phase of his life that saw him take on huge business investment challenges.
The first challenge was his family owned food company. The company known as Affiliated Foods supplied fresh food in Canada. To help the company expand, he came up with measures that made Affiliated Food the largest importer and supplier of fresh food in Canada. His impact on the operations of the business was felt after just a few years of operations.
The second challenge was working in the U.S investment banking sector. As an investment advisor, he had to research and offer his clients sound financial advice to help them make right investment decisions.
The third and the most important one was working with the National Steel Car Limited. This was a company that dealt with the manufacture of tank cars and railroad freight cars. When he bought the company, its fortunes had declined massively. To many, it did not look like a sound business idea, but to James Gregory, the corporation presented a good opportunity to transform its operations and make it the best in the region.
Greg J Aziz pumped capital into the corporation. He specifically concentrated on some areas that included: human resource, the equipment and customer service. After Aziz had set the company’s operations rolling, the outcome did not disappoint. National Steel Car improved on all department. Production went up as so did the human resource. The customer service of the company was also advanced to take care of the clients first.
