Hi Davidoff,

These might be worth looking at:

Visio Manufacturing Shape Sampler (Free!)
Manufacturing and Industry ShapeSuite

Hmm, I think I need to get Visimation (ShapeSource) to start advertising on this site...

Also, somewhat related:

Do you want generic shapes or something manufacturer specific?
As with network equipment, for many purposes a generic shape for a router/switch/server may be quite adequate, but for other reasons e.g. rack-mounting you may want a specific shape which many manufacturers provide.

What sort of shapes are you looking for?

Dear Paul,
I am looking for some industrial site shapes,
such as Cranes, Forklifts, Shelves, Warehouse, Docks, Leveller. Doors,

I know there are good shapes in default visio stencils, but looking for more examples.

Best regards

With shapes like this, cranes, forklifts, for example, there are so many variaties. They are also quite difficuly to draw in Visio. What i would be tempted to do is to do an image search in Google (or whatever) and use one or more of these images.
