Cane Creek is an American company, Tektro is a Taiwanese company.

Tektro is brake focused and hits a massive chunk of the OEM market and churns out some decent stuff at lower prices.

I think you might have meant Tektro and TRP (Tektro Racing Products). If so not a huge difference but the TRP stuff is generally of higher quality and more likely produced in their Taiwan factories rather than Chinese ones. TRP for them is kind of like S-Works for Specialized in a way. It is the higher end more polished product.
