One of the country’s top multi shop collision repair operators has taken the art of the deal to a new level. In four separate transactions, ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a Minnesota-based vehicle repair company and industry leader, announced the acquisition of two corporate repair centers and the opening of two franchise repair centers in four states. The latest deals increase the total number of ABRA repair centers nationally to 95 company-owned locations and 46 independently-owned franchises for a total of 141 in 16 states.

“There is no doubt we are in accelerated growth mode and are dedicated to following through on our long-term expansion and acquisition plan,” said Duane Rouse, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABRA. “We are focused on the future and fully expect to increase our business opportunities while expanding our national footprint in new and existing markets.”

“Not only are we are gaining momentum, but it is full steam ahead,” said Tim Adelmann, ABRA’s Executive Vice President of Business Development. “We are working hard to increase our presence in the markets we serve and are focused on an operational excellence philosophy that gives us a competitive edge.”

The four newly acquired repair centers are located in Omaha, Nebraska; Wilmington, North Carolina; Lebanon, Tennessee; and Clearfield, Utah.
