National Steel Car started doing business back in 1912 when it was founded in The Canadian province Ontario. The company was established in the city of Hamilton and started working in the industry of rolling stock manufacturing. The business is a subsidiary of the larger National Industries Inc.
The beginning of the National Steel Car was given by a few investors who joined forces to create a leader in the industry of manufacturing. The first leader that National Steel Car ever had was Sir John Morrison Gibson who was a part of the Magor Car Corporation. Basil Magor was the acting leader of the business of National Steel Car. After the business started functioning, Magor Car Corporation became the General Manager of the new business.
For the first few years of its life, National Steel Car surpassed the already high expectations of its investor. In 1913, a year after its inauguration, National Steel Car was functioning on top of its industry as the rolling stock order in Canada reached their all-time high. National Steel Car also started working together with most of the largest clients ordering manufacturing.
In the 1930s the depression period began. The business of the National Steel Car had been booming until then. During the period of the depression, National Steel Car started falling behind severely. The company started taking any and all order for manufacturing to manage to stay in business. It was a tough time for National Steel Car but the business managed to survive until its revival.
The outburst of the Second World War provided many clients for the National Steel Car. The business started receiving rolling stock orders once again and it started returning to its former glory. It had recovered substantially by the end of the war but National Steel Car was never quite as lively as it used to be.
In 1962, Gregory James Aziz purchased the business. He took the company back to its former glory and beyond. When Gregory J Aziz acquired National Steel Car it had only 500 employees and it was manufacturing a maximum of 3 50 freight cars per year Greg James Aziz overhauled the business and he expanded it significantly bring the number of employees to 3 000 and increasing the manufacturing capabilities to a maximum of 12 500 rolling stock per year.
National Steel Car is now among the top three business in its line of work.
