Hardware and Lumber Ltd is a Jamaican company retailing and wholesaling building materials, home improvement supplies, household items and agricultural products, and offers residential and commercial construction services.

Founded in 1927, Hardware and Lumber Limited was started by the Henriques Brothers, headed by Emanuel Henriques, who operated Kingston Industrial Works (KIW) located at 1 Darling Street in Downtown Kingston. KIW specialized mainly in iron works, building manhole covers, frames, and grates and to a lesser extent, bridges. At that location they also operated a small hardware retail business. As the post World War 1 (WW1) building boom continued and the need for lumber hardware items increased locally, the Henriques Brothers decided to separate the iron mongering side of the business from the lumber and hardware side of the business, therefore providing better quality service and a wider product range to two distinct niches.
In June 2003 Grace Kennedy Limited acquired 67% of H & L and its subsidiaries, H & L True Value, H& L Agri and Marine Co. from Pan Jamaican Investments (Pan Jam), which was to be later merged with the hardware division of Grace Kennedy, Rapid & Sheffield Company Limited, and Agro Grace Ltd.
