Gregory Aziz was born in London in 1949. He studied at Ridley College, and later enrolled for a degree in economics at Western University.
Upon graduating, he joined the family in running their wholesale food distribution business. He later worked for many investment banks.
While working as a banker, he negotiated financing for expansion for Canada-based National Steel Car. This marked his shift from banking to steel-car engineering and manufacturing. A company owned by Greg Aziz, Hamilton Corporation, bought National Steel cars from Dofasco of Canada in 1994.
National Steel Car is a railroad freight car and tanker engineering and manufacturing firm. It was founded in 1912 in Canada. It kept changing hands due to its declining returns until Greg James Aziz took charge of its operations.
At the time, it had employed six hundred people and was making over 3500 vehicles each year. Under the leadership of James Aziz, it grew to employ over 3000 workers, producing over 10,000 cars per year. Today, it leads in the production of tankers and railroad freight cars in North America.

The company has a strategy for growth that emphasizes respect for established traditions, continually looking forward and focusing on quality and excellence.
