The Louis Wild Memorial Scholarship

International Tool is a family owned business. The company was started by our father, Louis Wild, who sold power cords from the back of his van to contractors on job sites in the 1960's. This led to the sale of assorted accessories which led to the sale of power tools and our first retail showroom located in Hollywood, FL.

We are now located in Davie, FL and boast the largest stocking showroom in the southeast. Though unfortunately my father is no longer with us, I know that he would be proud to offer this scholarship as he strongly believed in the importance of a good education.
