National Steel Car has been a well known and established rolling stock car from the year 1912. The company has changed hands just a small number of times but when the purchase went through to Gregory Aziz, the company began to see numbers it had never seen before.
Greg Aziz has helped to bring not only more revenue to the business but also to bring more jobs to the Hamilton, Ontario area. The assembly plant that is based in Hamilton has been able to hire more workers due to contracts that have gone through under Greg James Aziz’s help.
In the recent news, Gregory J Aziz was able to take contracts in that would grant him the production of 1000 new grain hopper cars. Until this time, the grain hopper cars had remained unchanged in appearance since the first car rolled off the assembly line. With the recent changes made to the assembly and design of the grain hopper cars, the cars are able to carry more at once while weighing less than the original cars. Not only are the cars made to weigh less but they also are shorter in size. Even though these changes have been made to the cars, they are still able to carry up to 10 percent more than the original cars.
Greg James Aziz has not only helped to bring jobs to Hamilton through the production of the 1000 new grain hopper cars, he was also awarded a contract that called for 350 new lumber cars. The high demand of products being made from lumber has placed an increase on the number of lumber cars needed.
Since Gregory Aziz took over the business in 1994, the company is tripled in size for the number of orders it receives and puts out per year along with the number of employees it has since hired. When the company was first acquired, the number of employees out of the Hamilton plant were only 500 employees. Since the purchase, there are now more than 3000 people working for National Steel Car.

When the original purchase went through, the number of orders that were being handled by the National Steel Car company was at 3500 total cars per year. Since that time, Greg Aziz has helped to bring that number to over 12000 cars per year. In the latest contract, the production of the grain hopper cars will start out at 1000 cars in a two year period while wrapping it up in the end with the purchase of a total of 5900 grain hopper cars.
