You're heading in the right direction since you already visualize the
structure. I would add new fields to your products database so that you
end up with each item having this structure:
code category manu line
AZ19340 socketsets AOKzTECH 34inch
return all the "AOK zTECH 21 PIECE 3/4 inch DRIVESOCKET SET MET"
