Attaching manufacturer and details to products


I have used Drupal itself for a few years but not the e-commerce portion. I am using Drupal 7.9 with DrupalCommerce 1.0 Jumping a site from a Virtuemart, I am trying to find references on how to attach manufacturers to products and record details such as address, contact info for the manufacturer. I have investigated using manufacturer as a taxonomy so far.

If someone could possibly give me an idea on the best approach to do this in DrupalCommerce, or provide urls to documentation I have missed, it is greatly appreciated. Lost a day or two asking Google the wrong questions apparently.

Thanks in advance,

The way you add information to products is by adding fields to them.

If I were going to put manufacturer information, I'd probably attach a nodereference field to the product which pointed to a node explaining about the manufacturer.
