Since the introduction of the first Globe Issue “A” Sprinkler in 1914, the Globe name has persisted in its enduring identity and continued innovation, developing the earliest lever-fulcrum dry pipe valve, Globe Save All center strut sprinklers, and eventually becoming the first US company to utilize 5mm and 3mm Glass Bulbs in its commercial and residential sprinklers.

In 2014, Globe was recognized by the State of Michigan as a recipient of the prestigious 2014 Prosperity Award. The Prosperity Award is presented to a Michigan business that represents “strength, innovation, growth and community enhancement.”
