South Bend is in Northern Indiana. The city's name is drawn from a bend in the St. Joseph River. South Bend is the home of the University of Notre Dame, but is also the former home of many large companies such as Studebaker, Oliver Chilled Plow, and Singer.
Currently, the area is home to Crowe-Chizek, AM General (which makes Hummer H1 and 2s), Bosch, Honeywell, and Woodwind & Brasswind. The city hopes to grow with the undertaking of a new nano-technology campus near the city, which has already brought new contracts for factories and businesses around the city.
