Dec. 31, 2012—ABRA Auto Body & Glass recently acquired four more collision repair centers in two U.S. states.

In two separate transactions announced last week, ABRA acquired Ogden Auto Body in Utah and Collision Plus Auto Body Repair Centers, a three-shop operation with locations in the Illinois communities of Swansea, Glen Carbon and O’Fallon.

The acquisition of Collision Plus Auto Body Centers marks ABRA’s first locations in the state of Illinois.

“Customer satisfaction has been our number one priority,” said Nick Gojmeric, owner and founder of Collision Plus Auto Body Repair Centers. “ABRA’s commitment to its customers while valuing a culture of ethics, integrity and teamwork makes it the perfect company to acquire our business.”

Brooklyn Center, Minn.-based ABRA acquired 16 collision repair operations, added seven new franchises and developed four new corporate centers during 2012, for a total of 27 new repair locations this year. The company now operates a total of 136 collision repair facilities throughout 15 U.S. states.
