Located in the cities of Bedford Heights and Euclid, the centers come from the acquisition of two Mayfield Collision Centers in a transaction that closed Nov. 12. Established in 1989, Mayfield was named one of 10 Top Body Shops in 2014 by ABRN, which recognized Mayfield for its commitment to customer care, technical training and employee development. The centers are also known for Guitar Mania---a community art project that has raised $2 million for two charities: United Way and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Education Programs.
Members of Abra’s leadership team will be heading to Cleveland to welcome Mayfield’s employees to the Abra team.
Abra first entered the Ohio market in 2014 and has since grown to 16 centers in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. These two locations are the company’s first in the Cleveland area.
“We’re proud of the success we’ve had in southern Ohio, and building a statewide presence just makes sense to us,” said Jim Kessler, Abra’s chief operating officer. “We look forward to introducing the Abra name to the community.”
