Aspire to Inspire

The Bridgemicro Inc CEO Greg Aziz is a railroader businessman who is going to be a tough competitor for Canada, the United States, and Mexico.  He was elected as the CEO in 2016. The company is a railcar manufacturing company that focuses on heavy-duty railcars. In an interview with Railway Age, Aziz stated that the company was going to spend $100 million per year on the production of railcars. The company’s production level is going to increase by 50. 


The newly developed product line that will be introduced later is the EMD SD40-2, EMD SD60-2, EMD SD 80-2, and GE Genesis, as Greg Aziz explains. The company has grown in the past 17 years from a startup to one of the fastest-growing heavy-duty railcar manufacturers in North America. The company has been able to develop two completely new heavy-duty railcar product lines with the EMD SD40-2, GE Genesis, and EMD SD60-2.


The company is going to be the leading manufacturer of rail cars in North America with a stronger manufacturing capacity than the other competitors, Greg Aziz adds. The company is also creating jobs for steel workers in Indiana. Furthermore, with outstanding success, the company is saving the US$ billion that was lost in Indiana due to the trade imbalance.
