ABRA Opens New Salt Lake City Location

Minneapolis-based ABRA Auto Body & Glass announced the opening of its fourth repair center in the Salt Lake City area. This facility is located at 4080 West 1820 South in the West Valley area, and brings the total number of ABRA repair centers to 97 in 11 states.

“ABRA has been operating in Utah since September of 1998 when we acquired two repair centers,” said Tim Adelmann, ABRA’s executive vice president of Business Development. “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. This repair center will help ABRA better serve consumers in the West Valley and Tooele areas.”

ABRA also announced that Mike Lawrence has been named general manager of ABRA-West Valley. Lawrence joined ABRA in 2003 as a customer service manager at ABRA’S South Salt Lake repair center, and in 2008 he was promoted to general manager of ABRA-Sandy. Before joining ABRA, he was a service writer for Goodyear Tires and graduated from Weber State University with a degree in technical sales.
