More about us


Our name, inspired by the significance of the number three in our founder's life and the cherished family nickname 'Turlumbu,' reflects a legacy of entrepreneurship passed down through three generations. At 3TC Group Limited, we are dedicated to upholding the values instilled by our forebears and fostering a culture of continuous learning and innovation. 


The number three holds a special place in the heart of our founder. From their formative years, playing football with the number '3' jersey, to the sense of unity among three siblings, the number three symbolizes harmony, balance, and the promise of good things to come. As the third-generation business owner, following the inspiring path of their grandfather, Carmelo Calleja, and their father, Emanuel Calleja, our founder's journey exemplifies the spirit of generational continuity. The name '3TC Group Limited' celebrates this heritage and represents the family values that have guided our company since its inception.


Our founder's late grandfather, Carmelo Calleja, was an enterprising business man who made a lasting impact on the Mellieha community. From serving the British army with fruits and vegetables to establishing successful enterprises such as a petrol station, a bar, a tile factory, a soft drinks factory, and vast agricultural holdings, Carmelo Calleja's dedication to excellence and ethical business practices became a source of pride for the family. Although our founder never had the opportunity to meet their grandfather, the stories of his accomplishments, integrity, and community influence have been cherished by the Mellieha community for over five decades.

Following in the footsteps of Carmelo, our founder's father, Emanuel Calleja, affectionately known as 'Emy,' continued the family legacy of entrepreneurship. As a wholesaler at the Ta' Qali Farmers' market and a successful entrepreneur, 'Emy' ventured into various businesses, ranging from fruit and vegetable distribution to managing a retail outlet, a restaurant, and leasing commercial properties. The values of hard work, dedication, and community engagement embodied by both Carmelo and 'Emy' have profoundly influenced our founder's approach to business and life. 


At 3TC Group Limited, we believe that a successful business is built not just on financial gains but on the bedrock of family values and personal growth. Our founder's upbringing within a family of entrepreneurs provided them with exceptional role models to look up to, learn from, and emulate. This has instilled in them a motivation and eagerness to carry forward the family legacy while nurturing their own unique vision for the future. At 3TC, we are dedicated to cultivating a culture of continuous learning, innovation, and collaboration among our team members, as we believe that personal growth is the key to achieving collective success.
