Asbestos Exposure in South Bend, IN

The city of South Bend, Indiana is situated on the St. Joseph River near its southernmost bend, from which its name is derived. South Bend is home to over 100,000 residents and serves as the seat of St. Joseph County. It is one of the largest cities in Indiana, and the economic and cultural hub of the Michiana region, with the University of Notre Dame located just to the north in unincorporated Notre Dame, Indiana.

South Bend was originally settled in the early 18th century by fur traders, and later established as a city in 1865. The first industry in South Bend was developed in the late 1830s. By the mid-1840s, more industries were developing along the St. Joseph River. By the late 1800s, Studebaker, Oliver Chilled Plow Works, Singer Sewing Machine Company, Bendix and South Bend Lathe were just some of the companies that were making South Bend world-famous. The St. Joseph River shaped South Bend's economy through the mid-20th century. River access assisted heavy industrial development such as that of Studebaker, Oliver Chilled Plow Company, Birdsell Manufacturing Company, Allied Signal, and other large corporations. Today, the largest industries in South Bend are health care, education, small business and tourism. Remaining large corporations include Crowe Horwath, Honeywell and AM General.
