AC Marketech is Columbus, Ohio company founded in 1982. We are a boutique marketing firm focused on finding and placing products in the $30 billion arts, craft and hobby industry. We have 30-year track record of bringing dozens of product lines, hundreds of products, and over $500+ million in company and channel partner product sales to date.


Our mission is to find unique and exciting products from all over the world that fit the demographic and strategic targets of our channel and retail partners, and bring those products to market.


As principal of AC Marketech since 1997, Todd Arend is responsible for working with clients to manage growth, sales, marketing and new business development. With over twenty years in the industry, Todd brings a demonstrated ability to develop, implement, and manage national sales and marketing programs for a variety of products and product lines.


We search and find “diamond in the rough” products from all over the world and enable them to fit neatly into our specialty: thousands of arts and craft retail stores. The consumer demographics translate into a large potential product universe not currently being offered in this channel.


With capabilities in sales representation, product development, sourcing, branding and marketing (including packaging, merchandising strategy and supply chain optimization), we are able to assist with any issue preventing your product from being on the market.
