ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a leading national vehicle repair company, announced the acquisition of all five Hubler Express Collision repair centers in Indianapolis and the surrounding area.
The acquisition nearly doubles ABRA’s footprint in Indiana, coming just three months after the company entered this region's market with the opening of a repair center in Kokomo, Ind., and the acquisition of all five Collision Solutions locations in Indianapolis.
The additions bring the total number of ABRA repair centers in Indiana to 11.
ABRA Auto Body & Glass now has 101 corporate-owned locations and 49 franchise repair centers in 16 states.
“We’ve been exploring new markets and growth opportunities across the country,” said Duane Rouse, president and CEO of ABRA. “Hubler Express Collision’s strong position in the market made it a natural fit for ABRA. Not only does this transaction reinforce our growth strategy, but we will be able to cultivate and leverage their strong reputation for excellence, leadership, and trust in the Indianapolis community.”
Hubler Express Collision owners John Dompier and Rob Wilson will join forces with ABRA’s staff and assume leadership roles in the company to help maintain and manage operations in the Indianapolis market.
“Our mission has always been to improve our people, processes, procedures and customer service,” said John Dompier. “Vehicle repair is not only a science, but it’s also an art form. We’re bringing together two great names and creating one common goal – to lead the way in the collision repair industry.”
ABRA’s five newly acquired centers are centrally located in the cities of Greenwood, Indianapolis, Carmel, Fishers and Plainfield.
