Significance: Although the harvesting and manufacturing process used by the Oshkosh Grass Matting Company was typical of the era, and the grass mat industry, the Oshkosh Grass Matting Company was unique in terms of its national advertising and national distribution. Production was also significant, since it is estimated that one-half of the wire grass rugs manufactured in the United States were manufactured by this company. The Oshkosh Grass Matting Company, later known as the Deltox Rug Company, was also a significant contributor to the local economy over time. During the grass rug era, the company employed 250 persons. By the time it passed from local ownership in 1954, 550 persons were employed. Average employment, over time, was 400.
