The business itself established in 1943 with Jack and Joyce Karn is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. It has seven branch offices and eight fuel centres with third generation owners Dave Karn, Barb Molinaro and John Karn. Chief Financial Officer Dan Kelly says the story of Dowler Karn speaks for itself.

It also houses the Jack & Joyce Karn Collection Museum which opened in the fall of 2010, with over 10,000 memorabilia items that have been collected over the past 60 years including a fully restored 1919 Ford Model T fuel tanker. The collection is open to the public every Wednesday 8:00am-4:00pm in St. Thomas.
