Big PictureAxford Turbine Consultants, LLC, was formed in 2001 during 
the “Enron Surge” of orders for gas turbine generators.
  The gas turbine business was booming but it was clear 
that the bubble would soon burst.  Customers had 
purchased too many gas turbine generators.  So, Mark 
Axford quit his job as Vice President of Sales for General Electric Aero Energy 
to form an independent consultancy to help clients
 who owned turbines surplus to their needs and wanted 
to sell them.  

Since 2001, Axford has been directly engaged in 
transactions for more than $740 million in turbomachinery 
and other power plant equipment.  Customers include 
investor owned utilities, independent power producers, 
municipal utilities and OEMs.  Today, Axford offers a variety 
of services to customers including selling, sourcing, 
appraisal/valuation, forecasting, and market analysis.
