Roger Gray, who also owns Aberdeen Chrysler Center, was awarded the franchise, and relocated the facility to 601 Auto Plaza Drive in Aberdeen.
“The Aberdeen market has always been very important to us”, stated Mark Wahlin, Vice President of Franchise Development. “When we were looking for someone to transfer ownership to, we knew that we needed to find someone who shares the same principals of honesty, integrity and quality work. We know that we found that in Roger Gray, and look forward to a long and successful relationship with him and his team members.”
The relocated ABRA-Aberdeen consists of 13,000 square feet, two new Colmet Downdraft Paintbooths, and a 22’ Chassis Liner Framerack. They currently employ nine paint and body technicians, three Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) techs, and General Manager Jesse Weideman, who had been with the previous owner for over six years, will continue in that role with the new owner.
When asked of his decision to acquire this ABRA franchise, Roger Gray commented, “I know that our affiliation with ABRA will be very rewarding because of their commitment to superior service and excellent craftsmanship. The procedures, training, and marketing support provided by ABRA will help us improve and deliver industry-leading levels of efficiency and quality.”
