RRafael Paya Pico, a local tinsmith, started in the late 1800's, a factory in Ibi, Alicante, for sheet metal products, metal foundry and repair of music instruments. In 1902, his sons Pascual, Emilio and Vicente started producing metal toys. In 1905 they founded the Company Paya Hermanos (PH).  During the Spanish Civil War, the company Paya Hermanos was forced to make fuse and ammunition. The toy production was resumed in 1946 after the war. Paya Hermanos was the first Spanish company which used splashing machines for plastic and light alloys. They used Paya Hermanos as trademark as well as simply the name PAYA. The company ceased to exist in 1982.
