The Scottish contractor has entered into a period of consultation with staff at the Barrhill manufacturing plant over the potential loss of 60 jobs.
Solway Precast is a long-established precast supplier across the whole construction sector and has been based in Barrhill for around 40 years.
The sharp downturn and increased competition forced the firm last month to close Solway Steel’s plants at Creetown and Killoch with the loss of 80 jobs.
Bill Weir, managing director of Solway Precast, said: “Manufacturing and fabrication have been especially hard hit in the past couple of years and this has resulted in the unfortunate but necessary requirement for us to conduct an operational review of Solway Precast business.
“We do regret having to take this action and it is not one we have taken lightly,” he told the Ayrshire Post.
“We are actively considering all options open to the business and will continue to consult with staff to ensure they are kept informed on any progress in this regard.”
