ABRA Buys Five Shops From MSO in Indiana

ABRA Auto Body & Glass announced the acquisition of all five Hubler Express Collision repair centers in Indianapolis, Indiana and the surrounding area. The new ABRA centers are located in the Indiana cities of Greenwood, Indianapolis, Carmel, Fishers, and Plainfield.

This latest growth news nearly doubles ABRA's presence in the state after the company entered the market in 2012 with the opening of a repair center in Kokomo, IN, and the acquisition of all five Collision Solutions locations in Indianapolis.

The acquisition announcement brings the total number of ABRA repair centers in the state to 11 and increases ABRA's corporate and franchise repair centers nationwide to 149 in 16 states.

"We've been exploring new markets and growth opportunities across the country," said Duane Rouse, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABRA. "Hubler Express Collision's strong position in the market made it a natural fit for ABRA."

Hubler Express Collision's owners John Dompier and Rob Wilson will join forces with ABRA's staff and assume leadership roles in the company to help maintain and manage operations in the Indianapolis market.
