Our 75th Anniversary!

May 31, 2018 1:37 pm

In 2018 we celebrate 75 years in business as a third generation company. Dowler Karn continues to grow – We now operate 9 branch locations, a staff of over 180 employees and a fleet of over 70 trucks. Movement of a drainage ditch around the head office has begun to allow for the building of new office facilities for our headquarters in the very near future.
Our Jack & Joyce Karn Collection, also known as the Dowler-Karn Museum, is home to thousands of antiques. From dinky toys, to a full-sized Model-T tank truck, and even one of the first horse drawn tank wagons in Canada, we are certain our collection has something for everyone. Over the years, Jack and Joyce gathered an amazing array of gas and oil memorabilia as well as local history items. These carefully chosen and much-loved pieces are proudly displayed in a private collection now available to the public! Their children, and third generation family business owners, John Karn, Barb Molinaro and Dave Karn continue to build the collection, and host numerous events at the museum. The Museum is open for public visits every Wednesday from 10-4pm. We hope you’ll come see it.
