Ignition Park, South Bend

Ignition Park is one of two locations in South Bend that make up Indiana's first two-site state-certified technology park. The other is Innovation Park at Notre Dame.

Ignition Park is near downtown on 140 acres of land owned by the City of South Bend. The high-tech park is home to enterprises engaged in manufacturing and support services for the high-tech industry. These include Data Realty, Transpo and the Notre Dame Turbomachinery Facility.

The park boasts 200 megawatts of available power, an industrial-strength power infrastructure that features four, bi-directional redundant substations creating a robust and secure ring of power. Transmission lines from three of those substations service Ignition Park’s substation. Power to the park is delivered at a cost per kilowatt hour far below the national average.
