ETTCO Tool Co. was founded in Brooklyn in 1901 by E. T. Trotter as Eastern Tube and Tool Co. The company manufactured tapping heads, drill heads, and related machinery. The company made several products invented by George Emrick, and these were branded Ettco-Emrick. By 1942, these included tapping machines, drill chucks, tap chucks, multiple tapping and drilling heads, and tapping attachments.

In 1964 ETTCO moved operations to York, PA, and in 2004 Rockford Drill Head bought ETTCO, closed the York plant, and shifted production to Rockford, IL. The company currently does business as Createch Machine and Design. Createch also manufactures products originally made by Procunier Safety Chuck Co.

George Emrick also invented a drill chuck that was manufactured by Automatic Drill Chuck Corp.
