I do not believe you can as industrial zones generally are for manufacturing areas where customer visits are at a minimum.

Is it zoned I-1, I-2, or I-3?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I-3. No walk in customers. R & D and phone orders. Neighbors in residential area are filing noise complaints

What is generating the noise?

Expert:  MIAMILAW1127 replied 1 year ago.

The I-3 District is intended to provide locations for those industrial uses that may generate relatively high levels of noise, vibrations, smoke, dust, odor or light. These industrial uses are incompatible with residential uses. For this reason it is desirable that they be located downwind, and as far away as possible, from residential and most commercial uses.

That's the definition for I-3 zoning, so you shouldn't be having an issue if your property was already zoned I-3 prior to the surrounding residential happening. Your industrial zoning is the highest level of industrial zoning permissible. The neighbors can complain all they want, however, you are within the definition of what your land is zoned.
