Layup logo

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

In 1997, Varie and sister company Sonnet Computer Entertainment were merged into the company. (One would assume Layup acquired them at some point, but there is no information available.)
