    Well, I work for that company.
    Now, I spent about an hour if not 2, today updating it (the copyright still said 2005) but it's crappy old table-based layout, and the software used to make it (Adobe GoLive CS2) sucks and I ended up doing most of the work in Notepad.

    Suggestions to make it better? I'm thinking of re-doing the whole this with CSS.
    And yes, the whole site is sort of a hackjob lol.

    Redoing the whole site is a good bet.
    New Menus and centering the content seems a must to me.
    Maybe if you plan to have lots of content into it (like company news etc) using a CMS may be suitable.

    Personaly love joomla and you can get plenty of great tempaltes to fire up your dev. time.

    Porty - I left the link on your first post because it was pertinent to the thread where it was posted.

    Other than the apparent link drop (which I didn't see, but Mare's sharp, so I'll back her), I'd agree with Porty for the most part. This site is about seven years past its expiration date, both in terms of layout and coding.

    You're probably married to the logo, but everything else from the ground up has to be rethought. Layout, copy, code, that silly site tracking script, everything.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    Consider looking for a web template to start with.
    Web template + Dreamweaver and you will have your site redesigned in "no time".

    All your content is there it should not be to hard. Just redo in css, loose the tables, and try a few designs maybe? Once you add a style sheet and some effects, maybe a new navigation. It should look plenty updated and still seem fairly simple. It does not look like its suppose to be an extravagant site. Just something simple and to the point.
