OMC Laundry Cart

This wooden laundry cart was found in 35c.  Does anyone know what “OMC” stands for?  Or remember seeing this cart in use?

We use to use this cart in our laundry department at the OSH Material Distribution Center Warehouse. Do not know what the omc stands for.

The laundry cart is from the Oregon Mill Creek correctional institution. The wood I believe is bamboo. If you go into the tunnels you will see narrow tracks. Staff used to transport laundry in these hand-push carts. That’s all I know.

It is not uncommon for prisons to provide contract laundry service to hospitals, even today.
