MINNEAPOLIS, MN – ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a leading national damaged vehicle repair company, is pleased to announce a definitive agreement to acquire 23 Kadel’s Auto Body locations in Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Additionally, ABRA also acquired Reflections Auto Body’s north Milwaukee repair center location in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Details of the transactions were not disclosed.

These ongoing developments are all prime examples of ABRA’s execution of its aggressive growth strategy to increase its national footprint. ABRA officially operates 287 repair centers in 22 states, 19 of which are across Wisconsin. The count will jump to 310 repair centers in 23 states once ABRA closes on Kadel’s Auto Body locations.

ABRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Duane Rouse says the company isn’t slowing down and evaluates each acquisition with certain goals in mind. “Expanding our presence in Wisconsin is another opportunity to increase our market share . . . across the state. It’s what we look for in each of our acquisitions. The loyalty our insurance partners and customers have shown through the years in the market is unmatched. It is this support from the communities we service that allows us to thrive and grow across the country.”

ABRA’s leadership team credits its growth and ongoing success to its superior operating processes. ABRA’s Executive Vice President of Operations, Scott Krohn says, “Our accomplishments and our ability to expand throughout the country is a direct result of our commitment to operational excellence. Implementing our standard operating processes in repair centers around the country results in consistent industry leading operating metrics and superior customer satisfaction ratings. Maintaining high performance ratings is what will allow us to continue to grow into the future.”
