IndústriaGlobo is a major corporation and a key player in the Drive universe. It has existed for longer than the Second Spanish Empire, going back to at least 2240, when Conrado Cruz began working there. It has very close ties to the Empire and La Familia, its logo even being displayed on Imperial propaganda. IndústriaGlobo created the Machito as a luxury yacht before being repurposed as a scout ship by the Empire. IndústriaGlobo twice attempted to reverse-engineer the Ring Drive, both times being severely punished by the Empire. They have developed numerous technologies, including Ring Relays for quick communication and the Neutron Daisy Cutter, a weapon used against the Vinn.
