Our friends at the EPA are responsible for most chrome plating shops going out of business. Take a look at automotive aftermarket parts catalogs, such as Speedway and others and they will warn that their chrome parts are not of the quality that were available a few years ago. Off-shore, China, VietNam, and other places are still producing chrome plated stuff but it is nowhere close in quality to the old triple chrome plating that we used to get here in the States prior to environmental laws which have restricted the use of certain materials used in the plating process.

As was suggested, you might try some auto or motorcycle shops in your area and see where they get their plating done. Good luck.
