An expansion at an Oberlin medical device maker will add up to 60 new jobs. Synapse Biomedical Inc. will receive a job creation tax credit to expand in Oberlin. The new jobs will generate an additional $5.1 million in payroll added to an existing payroll of $1.3 million, according to Gov. John Kasich’s office. The company will get a seven-year, 50 percent tax credit for new income taxes generated. “The expansion really has to do with expanding our market,” said Tony Ignagni, company co-founder and president. “We’re just putting in place our plans to add staff to expand the manufacturing and commercialization of the device.”
