Probably some candidate include

F5 Network LTM which can do below
•An HTTP forward proxy using it iRule and iApp or SSL Forward Proxy

Or via ZScalar services

But we need to take a balance approach as proxy chaining via multiple proxies add latency and also not most proxy servers may be deploy to support manual failover support  and resiliency level is lowered as each "chain" form the weakest link.
