Dan Johanek is the purchasing manager for Bayer Interior Woods, located in Sauk Centre, MN. 

Bayer manufactures cabinet components, assembled cabinet doors, assembled and finished drawers, assembled and finished cabinets and closet systems. The company purchases more than 400,000 board feet of mostly No. 1 Common Red Oak, Hard Maple, Alder, Cherry, Hickory, Yellow Poplar, Yellow Birch and Aspen in 4/4 thickness. 

Bayer builds 100 percent custom cabinets for its dealer networks, offers finishing of any components and more than 90 percent of the company’s products are shipped on its own trucks, ensuring safe transit and delivery. 

Johanek has worked at Bayer more than 20 years, almost all that time spent in purchasing. He’s been in the forest products industry more than 40 years, starting as a tailer at his uncle’s sawmill in northern Minnesota. He also worked in the woods skidding logs for his uncle and dad, and used to peel “Popple,” or Aspen, every spring, letting them dry all summer and then hauling them to a railroad depot. Peeling the trees gave them a premium price over unpeeled logs. “It was a lot of hot, sweaty work in the mosquito and wood tick-filled swamps,” Johanek recalled. He previously worked at Woodcraft Industries in St. Cloud, MN, as a moulder operator, and was promoted to production supervisor. He also worked in the yard sorting, grading and stacking lumber, and operated dry kilns and pre-dryers. 

Johanek graduated from high school in Meadowlands, MN, and received a two-year degree from Brainerd Vocational School, now Central Lakes College, in Brainerd, MN in landscape technology and management. He’s been married to his wife, Anne, for 38 years and has two children and five grandchildren with one on the way. In his spare time, he likes hunting, fishing, riding his four-wheeler, gardening, being in the outdoors and spending time at his cabin. 

Bayer Interior Woods is a member of the Central Minnesota Manufacturing Association, Central Minnesota Builders Association, Minnesota Metropolitan Contractors Association, Builders Association of the Twin Cities, National Association of Home Builders, Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association, and the Sauk Centre Area Chamber of Commerce.
