The centers are located in Highlands Ranch and Colorado Springs, CO.
"ABRA has been operating in Colorado since late 1997 when we started with two acquired repair centers," stated Tim Adelmann, ABRA's Chief Operating Officer. "Throughout this time we have developed close relationships with our insurance partners and their insureds which has lead to ABRA now owning and operating nine centers in the Denver/Colorado Springs markets. ABRA is committed to expansion in Colorado, and these two new locations will continue to provide our customers with the best possible collision repair experience."
The Highlands Ranch and Colorado Springs locations are examples of ABRA's prototype centers. Both consist of 18,000 square feet, and utilize a Kansas Jack rack, a Shark measuring system, and USI Italia paint booth. When fully staffed they will each employ a general manager, two estimators, two customer service reps, a parts manager, a production manager, four body technicians with three apprentices, two painters with two assistants and two detailers.
According to David Call, Vice President ABRA-Colorado, "The entire ABRA-Colorado team is extremely excited about these two new locations. By opening these repair centers we are addressing the needs of our insurance partners who saw a need for high-quality repair centers in these two areas. We look forward to fulfilling their needs with these two facilities, as well as with new centers to come."
