Do you need one exactly like that? Or just an American socket that an American plug will mate into? If it's the latter then I can help you

Ah, ok. I've got some American trailing sockets which are probably not what you're looking for then, sorry.

Looks like NEMA 1-15R, I can only find the snap in style.
RS used to sell a chassis/panel mount version:
