MINNEAPOLIS, MN – (September 19, 2016) – ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a leading national damaged vehicle repair company, expanded today with the addition of a new location in Florence, Kentucky, approximately 15 miles southwest of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Today’s opening brings the company’s national portfolio of repair centers to 335 locations in 25 states. The newest location marks the first presence for ABRA in the state of Kentucky.

While the newly constructed center takes ABRA into a bordering state it currently operates, a notable purpose is to also complement existing operations in the Cincinnati metropolitan area. The company now services vehicle owners in 15 locations across the Ohio and Kentucky market, using an operational excellence philosophy which results in industry-leading operating metrics, distinguishing it from competitors and making it a preferred option for insurance carriers and vehicle owners.

ABRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Duane Rouse, says the company is proud to open this state-of-the art facility. “Each location presents us with increased opportunities to demonstrate our exceptional customer service model to insurance carriers and vehicle owners. We look forward to serving this new area with the same outstanding care and workmanship our customers have come to expect. Today’s addition is the result of hard work and dedication on the part of our employees and we look forward to serving both new and existing customers at our Florence, Kentucky location.”

ABRA’s Executive Vice President of Operations, Scott Krohn, says the company worked diligently to establish standard operating processes in the market before considering additional growth. “Today’s expansion is possible because of our ongoing commitment to operational excellence. It is a hyper-focus on our core processes which allows us to expertly serve our customers and be in the position to grow and expand our operations.”

ABRA is committed to conducting operations based on responsible business practices including implementation of environmentally sustainable initiatives, health and safety, and a commitment to the communities in which it serves.
