What Bert Has To Say About Fort Wayne Metro Area

Fort Wayne is a business center and the second largest city in Indiana. Located in the northeast corner of the state at the confluence of three rivers, it is a diverse industrial and commercial center with an attractive downtown and a friendly, small-town feel for a city its size. Its industrial base has recovered from the 1980’s decline of International Harvester and includes electronics manufacturer Motorola and other high-tech, electric motor and automotive suppliers, as well as the headquarters of Fortune 500 member Lincoln National Life Insurance. Despite the vulnerability of these industries, employment has held steady thanks to the area’s economic diversity.
