Arlene Blunck

Arlene is excited to be celebrating her 35th year at All Office Machines Peterborough – Cobourg.  She helps her customers select the right copier/printer for their “wants” and more importantly, their “needs.” She doesn’t stop there; she continually follows up right through to the end of the life of the equipment, no matter how long it takes.

She loves to give back to the community and has been a  very active Rotarian for over 17 years. Her main focus is Rotary’s Victoria Day Fireworks and Family Night every Victoria Day weekend and loves to help out at the Breakfast Food Program every week.

Arlene is also a very long time member of the Women’s Business Network and is currently the Membership Director and the proud recipient of the prestigious “Member of the Year Award” for 2018/2019 year.

It is not all work and no play for Arlene as she loves to be outside whether it is biking, hiking, kayaking, SUP, running, camping, travelling, or geocaching. And when the weather doesn’t cooperate, she spends her time scrapbooking and curling.

Peter Blunck

Born and raised in Peterborough, Peter grew up in the family business, spending his summers travelling to the area schools cleaning and servicing typewriter, getting them ready for the new school year.

After graduating from Adam Scott, he received his diploma in electrical engineering technology at Sir Sanford Fleming College. He started working full time for the business in the service department repairing cash registers, calculators and fax machines. Peter spent the early years working in the service department learning that end of the business and then when his father retired in the late 1990s; Peter took over the operations of the business.

While at Fleming he met the love of this life (yes, it is Arlene). When Peter was on a service training course, Gus, Peter’s dad thought it would be a good idea if Arlene came to work at All Office Machines Peterborough – Cobourg, so she was hired. Just like that, …..and the rest is history.

Peter’s downtime includes baseball, golfing, running(sometimes), skiing, and snowshoeing. Together with Arlene, he enjoys camping, kayaking, SUP, and sometimes he will join her on some of her geocaching adventures.’
