The history of Oil Changers, a proud Ontario company:
Daniel Marin and Barbara Marin
Daniel Marin started in the automotive service industry in 1971, and along with his wife Barbara, purchased The Lube Factory Inc. in 1996, when it consisted of eight Lube Factory franchises. From 1996 until November of 2004, Daniel was President of the company, and with the help of Barbara, handled all aspects of the company. In November of 2004, they began handing over the day-to-day operations of the company to his eldest son, Thomas and in January of 2009 sold the company to their three children, Thomas, Julia and Jonathon.
Thomas Marin began his career at Oil Changers in 1997 as an upper lube technician. In December of 2003 Thomas opened his own Franchise in Pembroke, Ontario. In early 2005, Daniel Marin began handing over the reins of the company to Thomas, his oldest son. At that time the Pembroke Franchise was sold to a Franchisee, and Thomas began working out of Oil Changers Inc. head office as General Manager. In September of 2005, Thomas officially took over as President. Thomas is actively involved in all head office operations, including contract negotiations and the development of new Franchises. firstname.lastname@example.org
Julia Marin began her Oil Changers career in 1999 as a cashier at a corporately owned Oil Changers. In 2006 Julia began to work out of Oil Changers head office, organizing grand opening events, discount coupon campaigns, radio and print advertising, and various other marketing initiatives. In January 2008 Julia opened her own Franchise in Ottawa, Ontario, working full-time in her store as a lube technician and licensed Drive Clean inspector until April 2009, at which time she began dividing her time between the franchise and Oil Changers Inc. head office. In March 2010 Julia sold her franchise and now works solely at Oil Changers Inc. head office, overseeing day to day administration. email@example.com
Jon Marin began working as an Oil Changers lube technician in 2003. He worked in several locations across the province to gain more knowledge and advice from the store owners. Jon then worked closely with Thomas in scouting and developing new franchises. He continued this role by constructing and opening stores in Brantford and St. Catharines before opening his own Oil Changers franchise in Stittsville, Ontario in April 2012. He is currently Owner/Operator at the Stittsville location, as well as assisting Thomas and Julia with the operations of head office. firstname.lastname@example.org
