By the time that Gregory James Aziz was taking over as the CEO of National Steel Cr, the rate of production was very low. There was a low workforce, and this affected the annual sales of the company. Gregory James Aziz is a professional with a background in Economics from the University of Western Ontario. His astute contribution to the building of the company is developed from his rich academic qualification and the experience received from working in his family food company. Greg’s family focused on food production and sales within the location before having the idea of expanding its operations. After his graduation, Aziz helped the family to set a bigger dream and to become a competitive force in the market. After four years of his contribution to the family business, the food company has expanded its operation from Canada to the entire North America and parts of Europe.
Gregory J Aziz’s contribution in production increase
Having joined the National Steel Car in 1994, Greg Aziz made drastic changes that led to the improvement of the performance. First, he oversaw the successful purchase of the company from Dofasco. It was from this contribution that he earned his position as the chief executive officer. By the time he took over as the CEO of the company, there were only about 600 employees. James Aziz’s intention was to make the company to compete internationally and not just to focus on the local market. Five years after taking over as the CEO, the number of employees had increased from 600 to about 3000 people. Consequently, this increase further improved the production rate. When James Aziz took over in 1994, the company could only produce about 3500 cars in a year. The figure increased to more 12000 in five years. This was a remarkable improvement in the recorded profitability.
The market dominance
From the point of its purchase, the National Steel Car only served a specific area in Canada. Greg Aziz had a dream of making it the leading manufacturer in North America. Currently, the company manufactures the major car components in North America and part of Europe. Because of the outstanding quality of manufacturing, National Steel Car has constantly received its ISO certification as the best manufacturer for the last two decades. This influence is as a result of proper planning and good market focus. Through the positive leadership of Gregory Aziz, the company works under good motivation and a dream to be the largest component manufacturing industry in the world.
