mirrorINOX: decorative stainless steel sheet supplier
mirrorINOX is a young and innovative company specialised in metal finishing, manufacturing a vast range of traditional materials and newly developed solutions, adding performance, exclusivity and value to your project and product.
Our plant in Cleebronn, 40 kilometres north of Stuttgart in southwest Germany, comprises ultra-modern, custom-made production facilities, including a warehouse with extensive stock.
Our highly motivated and experienced team uses its passion, knowledge, and expertise as a stainless steel sheet supplier to improve established products, optimize processes and machinery and create new solutions for our customers in the sectors of:
- Yacht and marine applications
- Food processing
- Electric appliances
- Medical technology
- And more
Working very closely with architects, engineers, designers, and fabricators, mirrorINOX looks forward to new challenges. Together with our customers, we develop solutions for projects and materials, producing finishes to the highest standards in the most efficient way to meet their needs for all types of applications, thanks to custom metal plate sizes and thicknesses (1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 10 mm, etc.).
As an expert in stainless steel (or inox) plate fabrication and treatment, we provide high-quality metal sheets in different grades, such as:
- AISI 316 / 316 L
- AISI 304 / 304 L
- AISI 430
In January 2016, Michael Gebhart founded the company and immediately began the inhouse manufacturing of stainless steel finishes: mirror-polished, vibration-polished, other polished surfaces and various grit polishes.
The company developed rapidly as a popular stainless steel sheet supplier:
- Setting swiftly benchmarks in the area of mirror polishing of stainless steel plates: the highest quality of Super Mirror No. 8 and Marine Mirror No. 9
- Starting the production of a new beadblasting-line
- Continuously increasing the speed and upgrading the quality of the surface processing
At the end of that year, mirrorINOX designed and installed the world's largest mirror-polishing machine for inox steel surfaces.
2017 - 2019
In a very short period of time, mirrorINOX products had already been specified in numerous projects by renowned architects, designers, and artists thanks to the development of our stainless steel and other metal finishing range:
- Further improvement of quality finishes such as the mirror-polished finishes Perfect Mirror No. 10® and No. 12
- Installation of the largest and most modern PVD/TiN-coating line in Europe
- Launching of a brand-new product range – nanoINOX® AFP/ETC-coating (AntiFingerPrint / Easy-To-Clean)
By the end of 2018, mirrorINOX opened the production site in Leingarten to extend the company’s facilities and therefore stainless steel surface treatment capacities.
Within only 3 years, mirrorINOX operated at two locations with 30 employees and had started to build the new company premises.
The construction work proceeded at a very swift pace and the fusion of two locations took place as early as June 2020. mirrorINOX was able to move to a modern production and office complex in Cleebronn near Stuttgart and another new chapter in our corporate development began!
The company expanded rapidly, creating jobs, developing new surface finishes, and achieving other set goals.
In December 2020, mirrorINOX received the ISO 9001 certification.
In spring 2021, an additional PVD/TiN-coating line for smaller parts was put into operation with excellent results within a very short time.
Due to a strong growth as a renowned stainless steel sheet and plate supplier, we had already reached the limits of our capacities in the newly built Cleebronn plant after only a few months. Therefore, we decided in the summer of 2021 to expand our production facilities, further acquiring a neighbouring plot to erect production halls 3, 4 and 5.
We are now looking forward to the future with anticipation and excitement!
"Since 2016 we are redefining surfaces, combining design with ingenuity, function and performance taking quality standards to the highest level, always focusing on the demands of our customers."

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do."
