MINNEAPOLIS, MN - ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a national collision repair provider, announced the opening of five additional repair centers. Three of the centers are corporate owned, and two are franchises.

The corporate centers were opened in Tucker, Ga., (part of metro Atlanta) and Glendale and Waukesha, Wis. (both Milwaukee suburbs).  

"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 is also the owner of Rapids Ford-Lincoln-Mercury.
