Globe’s World Industries brand is one of the most recognized skate brands in the world with a rich heritage in action sports. Founded in the mid-1980s in Melbourne, Australia, Globe International has grown over the years to symbolize youth culture through its premium brands specializing in surf, skate, and snow. The World Industries division includes a diverse collection of core skate hardgoods brands such as Almost, Blind, and Enjoi, with direct distribution in North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
Globe International engaged The Sage Group to explore sale opportunities in the marketplace. The Company sold the World Industries brand and related licenses to i.e. distribution, based in Newport Beach, California. The Sage Group previously represented Globe International in the January 2007 transaction with Pacific Brands.
