Thereâs a new kid on the block in the hardware supply game. Joe Medeiros, owner/operator of JRâs Construction, has set up shop in the old Bermuda Glassblowing building. With the closest hardware supply stores being Godet & Young in St. Georgeâs and SAL Devonshire, Mr. Medeiros realized that construction companies working in the area would come to him rather than travel out of their way.

With an on-site warehouse, JCL Hardware has direct access to its stores, which are supplied by local companies, the Bermuda Cement Company and numerous American, Canadian and British brokers.

Mr. Medeiros is partnered by Herbert Alves and Stephen Joseph.
