MINNEAPOLIS, MN – (April 10, 2015) – ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a leading national damaged vehicle repair company, announced its expansion in Chicago, having aquired four new collision repair centers to the metropolitan area. These acquisitions include Zak’s Hi-Tech Collision Centers (located in Blue Island and Crestwood, Illinois) and Acacia Park Auto Body in Chicago, Illinois. From this growth, ABRA’s national collision portfolio has reached an impressive 271 centers in 20 states (and with 41 collision repair centers in the state alone, Illinois now stands as ABRA’s largest market).
