Layup logo

Layup Co., Ltd. (株式会社レイアップ; originally written "Lay-up" [レイ・アップ]) plans, produces, develops, manufactures, and sells products such as toys and character goods. It was established on August 15, 1979. [1]

In 1997, Varie and sister company Sonnet Computer Entertainment were merged into Layup. (Presumably Layup acquired them at some point, but that information is not available.)
