Redundancies are on the cards with the restructuring of part of Inframax's New Plymouth branch.
The roading and construction company's chief executive Chris Hayward said a restructure proposal was presented to New Plymouth staff on Wednesday.
''The proposal is currently undergoing consultation before any decisions are made.
''However, there is a possibility that redundancies could result from the ongoing restructure process,'' he said.
Hayward could not confirm the number of redundancies that would be made, as he said the consultation process with staff needed to be completed first.
Inframax was formed in 1999 after a merger of Te Kuiti company Waitomo Civil Construction and New Plymouth's Northgate Construction.
It is owned by the Waitomo District Council and employs about 150 staff.
