Abra Auto Body Repair Expands With 8 Centers


Abra Auto Body Repair of America is continuing its national growth with the addition of eight centers in June.

In Utah, Abra acquired Centric Collision, located at 1545 State St. in Provo, UT. The 16-employee, 32,000-square-foot shop opened on June 4. In a separate transaction, Abra Logan, located at 1240 South Hwy 89 in Logan, UT, opened on June 25. The 21,000-square-foot shop has seven employees. Each shop is the first Abra location in these communities.

“We’ve already got a great team, and we’re proud of the reputation for quality we’ve built in Utah,” said Jim Kessler, Abra chief operating officer. “We’re excited to welcome these 20-plus employees to our Abra family to continue that reputation.”

Abra has a long history in Utah, starting with the opening of the Murray, UT, location in 1998. These newly acquired centers expand Abra’s operations into southern and northern Utah and complement nine existing centers in the greater Salt Lake City area.

In Indiana, Abra completed the acquisition of all six Church Brothers Collision Repair locations on June 29. Details of the acquisition were previously announced.

Altogether, Abra has added 16 locations in 2018 and now has 354 repair centers in 27 states across the nation.
