ABRA Opens Five Repair Centers in Three States

The corporate centers were opened in Tucker, Ga. – part of metro Atlanta – and the Milwaukee suburbs of Glendale and Waukesha. 

"Part of our strategic goal is to add repair centers in our existing markets to better serve our customers and insurance partners," said Tim Adelmann, ABRA’s executive vice president of business development. "All three of these facilities are located in areas where a need was determined for an ABRA location."

The new franchise centers are located in Clinton, Iowa, and Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. The Clinton franchise agreement was awarded to John McEleney, who has been operating under the name of McEleney Collision. McEleney also owns Chevrolet, GMC, Buick and Toyota franchises in Clinton.


Allen Taylor has opened the repair center located in Wisconsin Rapids. Taylor was formerly operating under the name of Rapids Ford Body Shop. He’s also the owner of Rapids Ford-Lincoln-Mercury.

“ABRA is in a more aggressive growth mode,” Adelmann said, “and feels these five locations are an excellent start to what we believe will be a promising year.”
