ABRA Acquires Colorado Shop

Minneapolis-based ABRA Auto Body & Glass announced the acquisition of a repair center in Pueblo West, Colo. This facility, formerly known as Advanced Paint & Body, is now called ABRA-Pueblo West and brings the total number of ABRA repair centers to 97 in 11 states.

The shop, which had been owned and operated by Jerry and Dawn McCarthy since it was opened in 1987, consists of 27,800 square feet.

ABRA appointed Keith O’Daniel as general manager. In this position, O’Daniel will be responsible for leading the repair center and implementing ABRA’s operating system. He brings to ABRA-Pueblo West 40 years of collision industry experience, including five years as a General Manager for ABRA in Minnesota.

With the addition of Pueblo West, ABRA now operates 18 repair centers in Colorado.

“ABRA has been operating in Colorado since late 1997 when we started with two acquired repair centers,” said Rollie Benjamin, ABRA’s president and CEO. “Throughout this time we have developed close relationships with our insurance partners and their insureds and have made a commitment to add centers that will allow us to continue offering our best-in-class service.”
