ABRA Auto Body & Glass acquires Four Sons Auto Glass

ABR Staff Writer Published 11 July 2016

ABRA Auto Body & Glass acquires Four Sons Auto Glass and expands its auto glass operations in the Philadelphia market.

Today's acquisition significantly expands ABRA's auto glass service area into the central and southern portions of greater Philadelphia, and complements ABRA's existing glass service operations in the northern Philadelphia suburbs and New Jersey.

With this latest expansion, ABRA's auto glass division now operates in 14 markets across the country, in addition to ABRA's portfolio of 337 auto collision repair centers in 24 states.

ABRA has quickly increased its presence in the Philadelphia area since entering the market last year. ABRA president and CEO Duane Rouse said: "As a result of our standard processes and procedures and outstanding customer service, we have quickly become a trusted provider for collision and auto glass needs in the region.

"Today's addition strengthens our footprint and better positions us to provide superior services to an even greater number of communities in and around Philadelphia."

ABRA continuously seeks strategic opportunities to expand its auto glass operations to new service areas.

Regarding today's acquisition, ABRA Auto Glass vice president Jim Richardson said: "When it comes to expansion, we look for well-established brands with similar cultures and operational philosophies to our own, which allows us to quickly demonstrate our exceptional service model to new customers.

"Today's acquisition fits that mold well, as we bring on a company with a strong reputation for quality workmanship and high integrity."

Building on its increasing success, ABRA plans to continue expanding pursuant to its national growth strategy. ABRA is seeking opportunities to acquire collision repair centers and auto glass service businesses to integrate into its industry-leading operating system. Interested parties should contact Scott Gerling, Vice President of Corporate Development (sgerling@abraauto.com or 763.585.6210).

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