During a recent move, the removal company somehow managed to cause this damage to my murphy bed.

Under normal circumstances there would be these fittings:

Which slot into the bedframe here:

The two damaged attachments should fit to the bed here:

my question is whether it would be possible to repair the two damaged sections & if so, what would be the best approach.

Thank you in advance for your advice.

It would never stay if it was repaired. That part of the bed is made out of particle board and has had threaded inserts ripped out of it. The entire panel really needs to be replaced, preferably made out of plywood rather than particle board. If the bed is fairly new see if the manufacturer has a replacement panel and get the removal company to foot the bill.

it may be possible to have a section of flat bar cut and threaded - ca. 6-7 mm thick - and use a slightly longer bolt.
the flat bar could cover/reinforce the damaged area.

the question would be if there is sufficient space/room to do that.
