In other consolidation news, Minneapolis-based ABRA Auto Body & Glass awarded a franchise repair center to Randy Nehring in Sioux Falls, South
Dakota. Nehring is also the owner of Saturn of Sioux Falls, Cadillac of
Sioux Falls and Sioux Falls Ford.


In addition to collision
repair, the 10,000-square-foot ABRA-Sioux Falls repair center also offers auto glass repair/replacement and
paintless dent removal.

“Randy and his team have been running extremely successful new car
dealerships in Sioux Falls for many years,” said Rollie Benjamin,
president and CEO of ABRA. “With their emphasis on integrity, their
professional staff and leadership fit perfectly with our corporate
philosophy. We are confident that the Sioux Falls repair center will
perform at the high standards expected of all ABRA centers.”

When asked of his decision to open an ABRA franchise, Nehring said, “I
became very interested in the ABRA system after seeing the metrics of
their Aberdeen franchise. The procedures, training and marketing
support provided by their corporate staff will allow us to deliver
industry-leading levels of efficiency and quality.”


ABRA now has 96 facilities in 11 states. Visit for more information.
