Starting in a garage in Waukesha, WI in 1945, ETW Incorporated has evolved from a simple cutting tool manufacturing business to a leading 5-axis machining business serving customers that require extreme accuracy and precision. Our customers include some of the largest toolmakers in the world, who rely on ETW’s design engineering, rapid delivery, and quality tools.

As an early adopter and continuing practitioner of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), ETW was quick to see the potential of data-driven machining. To further that notion, ETW began using industry-leading, preeminent machines manufactured by the German machine builder, Deckel-Maho-Gildemeister (DMG) to ensure only the highest quality of cutting tool products. The focus on CIM with DMG continues today with the addition of our newest 5-axis mill / turn machining system.



To deliver quality products and reduce customer costs by employing cutting-edge manufacturing processes and by continuously improving our Quality Management System. To enhance customer experience by providing experienced technical support and superior customer service.


I’ve always enjoyed being involved in the tooling industry, even from the days when I first started working for Tool Service in Milwaukee, WI.  I chose to start my own business, ETW Inc, rooted in the belief that family values and arduous work were crucial to the success of my vision.  Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that ETW would become what it is today.  I aimed only for success, unaware of the future that would take shape.  ETW was a personal endeavor for me, and remains to this day a testament to the results that hard work can bring.  I strove to instill into all my employees values of honesty, dedication and faith in a new and exciting business.  I believe that as long as we are dedicated to our customers and we maintain excellence in our tooling operations, ETW will continue to be at the forefront of the industry.
