ABRA Auto Body & Glass Acquires Ogden Location

Press Release

January 2, 2013

ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a vehicle repair company, acquired four repair centers in two states increasing its new center total in 2012 to 27.

In two separate transactions, ABRA acquired three Collision Plus Auto Body Repair Centers in Southern Illinois just outside St. Louis, Missouri and Ogden Auto Body in Utah. The deals boost ABRA’s repair center portfolio to 136 and expands its national footprint to 15 states.

“This is our 16th acquired center of the year and our first step into Illinois and the St. Louis market,” said Duane Rouse, president and chief executive officer of ABRA. “We have also added seven new franchises and developed four corporate centers this year for a total of 27 new centers added to our system in 2012.”

 “Customer satisfaction has been our number one priority,” said Nick Gojmeric, founder and owner 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.”

“For more than 70 years, our repair center has been a trusted part of the community,” said Tom Baur, owner of Ogden Auto Body. “We know ABRA will continue the commitment we’ve made to superior service over seven decades in business.” The new Ogden location will be ABRA’s 5th repair center in Utah.
