A forklift driver has found a decomposing body with a possible bullet wound to the head in an industrial complex in Sydney's west. 

Police were called to the scene, centred on bushland between multiple factories on Pine Road at Yennora, about 7.30am on Monday. 

Investigators believe the man's body had been in the grass area for a couple of days.

A man from a nearby factory, who asked not to be identified, said the business owner who made the discovery had collected the forklift from his workshop and drove over to his own property.

"This morning he came here, everything was normal like any other day," the man said. 

"He took his forklift from here and drove to his place. He came back again and said, 'Oh my god, I just found someone dead.'

"He called the police and ambulance, they all got here about 7.30 to 8am."

The man said security patrols of the estate had recently stopped after it was sold.

Police have taped off parts of the sprawling industrial complex, home to a truck wash, building centre and steel facility, and forensic officers are combing through the scene. 

Detectives have also visited surrounding factories, asking for access to CCTV footage in a bid to piece together how the victim ended up in the centre of a factory complex.
