The Blue Grass Army Depot notified its employees during a meeting Monday afternoon that layoffs might be coming.
The Richmond site will not have enough work for more than 300 of its employees in fiscal years 2013 and 2014, according to a news release. Layoffs would require Congressional approval.
The depot is working to reduce the possible impact through attrition, hiring controls, and voluntary retirement and voluntary separation incentive pay, the release stated.
It also is "aggressively pursuing" new funding streams, according to the news release.
Never miss a local story.
The civilian work force at the depot increased significantly between 2007 and 2010 to support the military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that help is no longer needed. The depot was manufacturing mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles, but that and related programs also have ended, the news release stated.
A transition office is being set up to provide information to employees.
