DEVENS — When many people think about manufacturing, they imagine a Dickensian nightmare: Belching smokestacks, haggard workers holding lunch pails, dirty environments.
And so they stay away and encourage others to do the same.
But they’d be wrong.
Which is why Devens joined the rest of the country in celebrating Manufacturing Day on Oct. 3, a day that began in 2012 and is devoted to defeating misconceptions about the industry. A local trade show was held at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 59 Andrews Parkway.
