STURGEON BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Door County's largest employer has notified the state it plans to lay off hundreds of workers this fall.

The Bay Shipbuilding Company says 405 of its 700 employees will be let go at the end of October due to declining business.

Bay Shipbuilding laid off a small number of employees in June, July and August. It says those layoffs, as well as many others, are now necessary because of business conditions.

In a notification letter to the state Department of Workforce Development, the company says it's "aggressively seeking new business."
