My thanks to all who responded.

I have not found a supplier who sells these cables readymade (I have contacted
all companies I was pointed to).

The best bet is to contact
        Computer Cable Inc. 303-466-1733 (Denver, CO)
they make cables on order. You have to give them a spec for the cable however:
pinouts, what type of cable to use and so on.
