ABRA Auto Body & Glass has expanded in Minnesota with the acquisition of all six Lehman’s Garage locations. All locations are within the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
“The acquisition is particularly special for us as Lehman’s has been serving the community for almost a century,” says Duane Rouse, president and CEO. “The history, the reputation, and the dedication of the company to providing exceptional customer service and quality repairs is undeniable and we are eager to carry that tradition of excellence forward.”
Karen Cossette, former CEO of Lehman’s Garage, says it wasn’t unusual for potential buyers to show interest in her company, but it was ABRA’s similarities that made the difference.
“We’ve been approached by many companies over the years,” she explains. “We chose ABRA because their work ethics closely resemble ours and we share like-minded values of integrity, employee talent, and a commitment to customers. We’re proud to have them continue the legacy we’ve built over the years.”
