About The Company

As a third generation company, family has always been at the core of how we do business. A tradition of giving within the communities that we serve is a source of pride for all employees of Dowler-Karn. While we have been fortunate as a company to have enjoyed recognition and success through awards and accolades from our peers, it is the culture of teamwork that is evident amongst our great staff that brings the most satisfaction. That high level of employee satisfaction is evidenced in the high average length of service in our staff and the resulting low turnover rate. It is only through our continued success that we are experiencing growth and as a result, opportunities for new employees to join our organization.

As a company, we are fortunate to be able to continue to grow and invest in our future. This has allowed us to make investments in improved facilities while ensuring that we are able to provide industry leading service to our valued customers. We have always worked hard to be seen as leaders in terms of safety, equipment and technology. We are focused on achieving a leadership position within our industry both in terms of our customer service but also in terms of our commitment to the environment. We continue to strive for environmental leadership in safety, product handling and storage. This is re-enforced in our strong belief and commitment to training and education. This is evidenced by the partnerships that we have forged with our local emergency services personnel.

We recognize that Dowler-Karn would not be where it is today without the efforts of a great team of dedicated employees. While we may be separated by geography across our many branch locations, we are collectively connected by a sense of family and community within the company. From a one man, one truck operation to today, the Karn family has never forgotten its core values of honesty, integrity, and community responsibility.

Customer Service

Dowler-Karn is here to serve our customers. That attention to detail and knowledge of the needs of our many valued customers is what sets us apart. Neighbourly service from our drivers and service staff right through to the customer service staff and our Managers and Owners is what we strive for. When you call Dowler-Karn, you will get a live voice not a menu of choices. It is that personal touch and connection to our customers that we thrive on. With branch locations throughout Southwestern Ontario along with a network of 24 hour key lock locations, Dowler-Karn can meet your personalized needs in achieving excellent customer service and value for your hard earned dollar.
