The Globe Worsted Co. Ltd was a textiles company formed in 1887 by the amalgamation of a number of local companies.

The company built two mills in Slaithwaite which were collectively known as Globe Mills — Globe Mill No. 1 (built 1887-88) on the north side of Bridge Street and Globe Mill No. 2 (built 1889) on the south side of Bridge Street. A walkway once connected both buildings.

The company went into administration in 2004.
