Run by the ruthless Trade Prince Gallywix, the Bilgewater Cartel is seemingly the most powerful trading company on the Isle of Kezan. From their headquarters at Bilgewater Port, the cartel dominated trade all over the South Seas. They are also the de facto rulers of Azshara as of Cataclysm.
The Bilgewater Cartel used to be the most powerful trade group on the island of kezan. There domination in almost every market from Weapons manufacturing to simple sports. Like other Goblin Cartels, their power grew to where they ran full communities acting as a full government. It isn't known when or how it formed, however its known that by the time of the Cataclysm, it has been the most influential and richest trade family for decades at the least. However this glory would all come to a tragic end when the Cataclysm caused Mount Kajaro erupted burning the island to ashes. This caused the entire Goblin race on kezen to die if they weren't lucky enough to make it out.
Trade Prince Gallywix the current leader of the cartel, ensured that he made it out without of scratch only taking his fellow goblins with him to be slaves. You see, Gallywix has been establishing relations with the Horde ever since the start of the Third War. The Orcs would see use out of them for their natural talent at Engineering and Crafting. Anyways, Thrall while not the current Warchief by the time of the eruption, still was the most influential member in the horde. He assured that Gallywix would have his own piece of land where he could continue his trade empire on the backs of his Goblin slaves. However, while he did end up pushing the deal through and becoming the new ruler of Azashara and stayed the trade prince, his dreams of total power over the goblins was halted by Thrall and his allies.
As of the post Cataclysm patch, the Bilgewater Cartel is no longer focused on Kezan, it is now the rulling body of Azshara under the leadership of the Horde.
