ABRA Opens Five Repair Centers in Three States
February 1, 2011

ABRA Auto Body and Glass has opened five new repair centers. Three of the centers are corporate-owned, and two are franchises.

The corporate centers were opened in Tucker, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta; and Glendale, Wis., and Waukesha, Wis., both of which are Milwaukee suburbs.

“Part of our strategic goal is to add repair centers in our existing markets to better serve our customers and insurance partners,” says Tim Adelmann, ABRA’s executive vice president of business development. “All three of these facilities are located in areas where a need was determined for an ABRA location.”

The new franchise centers are located in Clinton, Iowa, and Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. The Clinton franchise agreement was awarded to John McEleney, who has been operating under the name of McEleney Collision. McEleney also owns Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, and Toyota franchises in Clinton, according to a statement from ABRA.

Allen Taylor has opened the repair center located in Wisconsin Rapids. Taylor previously operated under the name of Rapids Ford Body Shop. He also is the owner of Rapids Ford-Lincoln-Mercury.
