About Mesta

Every day, all over Norway, Mesta is present to ensure that people arrive safely, wherever their destination. With almost 200 years of experience working with infrastructure, we hold the leading position in the Norwegian market for road maintenance services.

Mesta was established on 1 January 2003, at which time the production division of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration was demerged as a separate limited company and made subject to competition.

Since inception the business has been significantly restructured, and today Mesta is a modern company with cutting-edge expertise within roads, railways, electro and energy, which constitute our four major business areas.

Our long history of building and maintaining roads combined with our passion to stay in front provides us with the continued capability to maintain and establish infrastructure. In this way, we attain our greatest objective:
