The market is thriving and we look forward to building on the success we’ve achieved in the region.”

Tim Adelmann, ABRA’s Executive Vice President of Business Development says, “We’ve received tremendous support from the community and our insurance partners. This acquisition allows us to become a valued partner by showing customers firsthand our operational excellence philosophy and superior processes that make us an industry leader.”

ABRA plans to continue expanding in the months and years ahead as part of its national growth strategy.  It is actively seeking new opportunities to acquire repair centers and integrate them into its industry-leading operating system.
