The acquisition significantly expands ABRA’s auto glass service area into the central and southern portions of greater Philadelphia and complements ABRA’s existing glass service operations in the northern Philadelphia suburbs and New Jersey.
With this latest expansion, ABRA’s auto glass division now operates in 14 markets across the country, in addition to ABRA’s portfolio of 337 auto collision repair centers in 24 states.
ABRA has quickly increased its presence in the Philadelphia area since entering the market last year. President and chief executive officer Duane Rouse said, “As a result of our standard processes and procedures and outstanding customer service, we have quickly become a trusted provider for collision and auto glass needs in the region. Today’s addition strengthens our footprint and better positions us to provide superior services to an even greater number of communities in and around Philadelphia.”
ABRA continuously seeks strategic opportunities to expand its auto glass operations to new service areas. Regarding the acquisition, ABRA’s vice president of Auto Glass, Jim Richardson, said, “When it comes to expansion, we look for well-established brands with similar cultures and operational philosophies to our own, which allows us to quickly demonstrate our exceptional service model to new customers. Today’s acquisition fits that mold well, as we bring on a company with a strong reputation for quality workmanship and high integrity.”
