Shop Operations: Setting Up a P&L Statement for Your Auto Body Shop
Multiple-shop operator believes it can leverage its 173 shops in 17 states to support NABC’s goal of elevating the industry’s image.
The National Auto Body Council (NABC) has announced that ABRA Auto Body & Glass has achieved diamond-level membership, the highest level of NABC sponsorship.
ABRA says its high level of community involvement was the driving force behind becoming a diamond-level member.
“One of the long-term goals of ABRA is to have all of our repair centers actively and positively involved in local communities,” said Tim Adelmann, ABRA’s executive vice president. “With our diamond-level membership, this goal can be a reality, especially since it meshes with the National Auto Body Council’s mission to improve the image of the collision industry across the country.”
In addition to creating a larger impact by combining its message with the NABC and others in the industry, ABRA believes it can leverage its substantial footprint of 173 collision repair facilities in 17 states to support NABC and its efforts to promote the industry.
“ABRA is a recognized industry name with a long history and a solid reputation not only for quality work, but for giving back to the localities in which they do business,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “Their philosophy not only aligns with the goals of the National Auto Body Council, but ABRA’s visibility in doing selfless good work will directly contribute to our mission to elevate the image of our industry. It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome them aboard.”
Companies and collision repairers interested in changing the industry for the better can help by becoming a member of NABC. Membership applications are available at www.autobodycouncil.org.
