What we do
HIG operates in the metals industry, commodity market. We trade non-ferrous metals such as lead and zinc both in the form of intermediate concentrates and end ingots. HIG sources the finest quality of lead and zinc from its own and third party suppliers and delivers it to both traders and end consumers.
The demand for lead is increasing especially in the emerging markets as the production and manufacturing sectors are growing at a rapid pace. Lead, is used mainly in the production of lead acid batteries has a direct relationship with the economic activity and a commodity well known for its volatile behavior. Apart from the fact that this industry is turbulent in the context of febrile market conditions, faces competitive pressures on one hand and exacerbated by weakening global economy on the other, gives us an opportunity to survive and fight in extreme treacherous conditions. Except these conditions the growing demand from the emerging BRIC economies and increasing environmental concerns finds new applications and markets for lead. This indeed keeps the industry growing in spite of the weakening global economy.
Zinc is no exception as it suffers from volatility due to the global macroeconomic factors. As a major consumer of zinc, the galvanizing industry depends on the growth of the construction and automotive sector, which is in turn dependent on the economic factors. These factors impose some of toughest challenges in the industry.
Through our team of expertise, apart from trading we do the due diligence on markets to analyze the market and industry trends. In HIG we adopt a proactive approach to identify and mitigate the risk factors in the business as a whole so that we can retain our focus on products and customers.
