Science vol.264 pp.1832 (June 24, 1994) has a half-page add from 
Biosearch (aka part of Millipore) advertising a comercial PNA sythesis 
service.  Sounds like what you're looking for....
	I of course have no affiliations to said company, (but I would be 
willing to change that statement for only a meagre salary and a new BMW :-))
	US/Canada contact number is 1-800-872-0071
	Hope this helps.
