SIXGEN TRADING LLC is a privately owned company registered in the lone star state of Texas, with renowned specialized activity in the trading of Line Pipe, Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG), and Steel piling from Turkey, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, North America and beyond. We are engaged in the physical trading of commodities on a global scale. This involves purchasing steel products, mostly from Mill manufacturers, then selling and delivering these commodities to US-based master distributors.  

We are very proud to promote proven, quality, market-accepted manufacturers throughout the world. We strive to create long-term partnerships with both our customers and suppliers that provide value for all involved. By bridging the gaps between mill and customer, we build stronger, longer-lasting relationships that benefit all as we work not only to make successful sales but to efficiently and resolutely solve issues that can lead to a breakdown in communications. With SIXGEN, relationships endure.
