You could actually do this yourself unless there is a reason why you don't want to. Search local water jet cutters or laser cutters. Water giving the better finish. If there is any reason either of those finishes wont be be good enough it could be machined. Then find a local Electro platers yell.com if a good source of info. Find one that chromes and you're good to go, they should take care of the polishing prior to plating if its required. The only thing to be wary of is make sure the sheet that is used is cold rolled and good condition (not heavily scratched or marked) and not hot rolled, hot rolled will be covered in scale and be a lot of work before plating and the finished part could well be a bit of a mess.

I can certainly look at pricing it for you but you would be paying someone for something you could get done yourself.

I hope this is helpful.
