Gregory Aziz Heading New Projects of the National Steel Car

National Steel Car, led by Gregory J Aziz as its President and CEO, has come a long way to reach its current status of a leader in Canadian manufacturing of rolling stock. Having been in its line of work for well over a hundred years, the National Steel Car has had its share of both difficulties and prosperities.



Up to date, the business is under the leadership of Gregory James Aziz. Gregory J Aziz bought it more than twenty years ago and immediately started working towards expansion. Previously, Gregory J Aziz worked in the family business called Affiliated Foods. The company is now working globally by importing foods from Europe and Latin America, among other places, and distributing them across the United States of America and Canada. Gregory J Aziz completely switched industries, but his business experience was still beneficial.



Previously, National Steel Car designed, manufactured and delivered 177 railroad cars. They will be used later on to transport potash from the mine from which it is sourced to Port Moody, B. C. where the potash will be handled and stored in the K+S company’s local facility.



Dr. Ulrich Lamp who is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the corporation stated that the delivery of any railroad transportation cars signifies only one thing- that the company is close to starting on its latest massive project. The company expected that they would be able to begin production in the second quarter of 2017.



The total of the order was 531 railroad transportation cars that national Steel car will be designing, manufacturing, and delivering to the K + S Potash. The cars are slightly shorter in length, but at the same time, they can be filled up while in motion. That is an excellent touch to enhance productivity especially since they can hold the same volume of the load as regular sized cars.



The Senior Manager of Logistics and Transportation Steffen Brill explained that the arriving transportation cars would be loaded at the facility in Port Moody by an automatic conveyor. After that, the load will be sent from the warehouse directly to loaded on a ship in one of the most modernized facilities handling potash. From that center, the stash will be distributed around the globe. Steffen Brill added that the initial order of 531 cars will be enough for the weekly requirement of the company for the first few months and that more cars will be needed later on.
