What kind of fork is this?

I need help identifying what brand if fork this is. I bought it a long time ago on craigslist and its awesome. I tried to find outs its brand a long time ago but gave up. I recently started rebuilding my bike and just now did I notice there is a VIN number and company logo on the steerer tube. The first picture is a drawing of the company logo. Help?

what do you need the brand for? looks like a fairly generic fork, is it particularly light or stiff?

it's probably aluminum, if and when needed you shouldn't have much trouble finding something very similar

That Leader fork looks extremely sexy...

Leader actually makes quite decent stuff, people just hate them because the way they market...with the sweet fixie crew.
