Please review the current website when you have a spare moment. I am in the process of changing the website and I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate some of the changes based on feedback form the user groups. I am also interested in your thoughts on using plug-ins for the menu system.
Thanks in advance

Okay the reason why you didn't put a direct link in the body of your message is what's wrong with the site. Any reviwer knows how to get to the site, so why put in a link? The reason is usability and user focus matter.
Great site!... Some pages need more info to fill page a little more. Loaded very quickly with 512k connection. When on contacts tab... hides the static email address.

Not bad. Simple and clean.
From a marketing perspective, putting your mission statement on the front page is well intentioned but not very effective (in my opinion, obviously). Even if a company makes shoddy products, is a cruddy partner, and regularly and enthusiastically rips off their customers...the mission statement they write will still sound like yours. The average user knows this and won't care how it reads or what it says.
Anyway, the homepage should have a copy and links to explain exactly what you do, what you make, and who you make it for. Not only is this what the user looks for, but it also helps with search engine listings. You can back that up with links to case studies, perhaps credits for some industry awards that you've earned, articles that have been written and published by company execs in industry magazines, and so on.
Regarding your scroll-down menus, the submenu copy is very hard to read. The text is very small and green lettering against a light green background is hard to make out. Change the color scheme and font size a bit and they'll be fine.
