T&R in South Dakota or SUNBELT SOLOMON SERVICES, Kansas. Used to give better warranties on rebuilds than you could get new. I once had a transformer that I waiting for a rebuild was going to take to long. Talking to my buddy at Sunbelt, Jed found out they had just finished one that would work for my need. Contacted the customer and made a deal. They shipped the rebuilt one and picked up the old one. Everyone was happy except for my 20 man crew that had to disconnect and reconnect in less than a week. This was 115kv to 69 kv. Got yelled at by the big boss for give the guys a 4 day weekend when the job was done. That was ok every one in the shop wanted to work on my projects.
I remember the last 13.2/ 13.8kv -480 volt transformer we changed cost more to ship and handle than it was worth to ship, repair, and send back. We had a transfer company move it in and out of place. It was about 7' tall, very heavy but, at the time, it was a stock item.

Ah, there is one on Ebay: Siemens 3 Phase Dry Transformer 3000/4000 KVA 13800-480 Volt DELTA | eBay
