We are proud to welcome you to our new Global International Sewing Machines website.
We have decided to categorize our machine models into various industries; for garment, shoes, automotive, upholstery, heavy duty and sail making industry. We also reserved some space for our well-known used machine department. In this way, you will be able to find the required model and subclass easier and quicker.
When you enter the page with the model of your interest, the following information will be offered on that page:
– Technical information
– The possibility to download the machine leaflet
– Parts and instruction manuals
– Information about table tops, stands, motors and other accessories which could be supplied with that certain model
– If available, a promotional video of the model.
With all this information a Global sewing machine can be quoted in a correct way.
We are very proud of our work to make this very user friendly and we hope this will assist you in the best possible way.

Global International, since 1950
Back in 1950, Jan de Vlieger started trading in industrial sewing machines and later became distributor of several trademarks. His sons took over and successfully expanded the company into one of the largest independent distributor of industrial sewing machines in the world.
In 1990 the company started to develop a new line of machines called “Global” and we started producing new machines at our own factory. This new company Global International BV has been very successful since many years and is specialized in new machines for the shoe, upholstery, heavy duty sewing and the textile industry under the Global brand name.
We still keep a large inventory of used machines of all brands, which we can offer for great prices.
Imca/Global’s headquarters in Haarlem, the Netherlands, covers 12,000 m2 and houses the company’s main offices, warehouses, distribution center, service department and the Imca/Global museum with our famous collection.
