Abra first entered the state of Indiana in 2012 with the opening of a franchise location in Kokomo. It has since added 14 more centers, primarily in the Indianapolis area. The addition of Church Brothers brings Abra’s total to 21 locations in Indiana. The six new Abra locations will be known as “Church Brothers, an Abra Company” for the foreseeable future. They will be staffed by the same experienced employees, and customers will receive the same service on which they’ve come to rely.
Church Brothers Collision Repair was founded in 1929 and has been family-owned for three generations, becoming a household name in the Indianapolis area. With repair centers in Avon, Castleton, Greenwood, Zionsville, downtown Indianapolis and on Shadeland Ave. in Indianapolis, the company has gained a reputation for quality repairs, caring customer service and a commitment to the communities it serves.
Church Brothers co-owners Dan and Rhonda Hall and their family said that they have selected an outstanding company to shepherd their firm as it approaches its 90th year.
"We are confident that we have partnered with a company that will continue our superior quality of workmanship and with excellent service focused on always satisfying the customer," Dan said. "Given these hallmarks, we see Church Brothers Collision Repair continuing to the century mark and beyond.”
“I’m really impressed with the employees at Church Brothers,” said Jim Kessler, Abra’s chief operating officer. “For almost 90 years, they have been serving their neighbors, and it’s an honor to carry on that legacy. We all look forward to welcoming them to the Abra family in Indiana.”
Abra has its own history as a collision repair provider of choice, growing from a single location in suburban Minneapolis in 1984 to more than 350 locations in 27 states today.
“We have built strong partnerships with insurance carriers with a commitment to helping our customers through a stressful period after an accident. We look forward to continuing to provide that same care in these newest locations,” said Kessler.
