ABRA Auto Body & Glass Expands in Delaware

ABRA Auto Body & Glass expanded in Delaware on July 31 with the acquisition of Henry Brothers Auto Body. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.

The new repair center is located in Wilmington, about 30 miles southwest of Philadelphia. The July 31 addition brings the company’s total repair center count to 312 in 23 states.

ABRA first entered the Northeast region 90 days ago with the purchase of all Keenan Auto Body repair centers.

ABRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Duane Rouse said the company is pleased with the opportunity to expand in Delaware just months after entering the region.

“When we first entered this area we knew there was a significant opportunity to expand our footprint. The fact that we’ve been able to establish a presence and begin expanding in the market so quickly is quite an achievement and one that demonstrates our ongoing commitment to being the collision repair provider of choice in every market that we serve.”
ABRA’s Executive Vice President of Operations, Scott Krohn said, “The Northeast presents enormous opportunity for us to expand our footprint and introduce our industry leading operating metrics and superior customer satisfaction ratings to more and more insurance partners and vehicle owners. These metrics are the direct outcome of the operational excellence philosophy that we instill in each of our repair centers from coast to coast.”

As it plans to continue expanding in the months and years ahead, ABRA is actively seeking new opportunities to acquire repair centers and integrate them into its industry-leading operating system.
