Topic: One big file or many?

I am putting together a second-tier catalogue of technical specifications and ordering criteria for an industrial machinery parts distributor. He handles products from 20-25 manufacturers, and 'manufacturer' is the prime sorting criterion. Most of those manufacturers already have their technical and ordering information available in PDF files, so it is a matter of collecting those, converting data from a couple of others (powerpoint and word, so far) and putting them on a Cd with an autorun setup for Acrobat Viewer.
I need a well designed and tiered Table of Contents which customers can move from (and back to). So the question: assuming that I could organize this material in many files (say, for discussion's sake, one per manufacturer) with a linked ToC file, or pull it all into one file with detailed Bookmarks/ToC.
Could someone please run through the advantages and disadvantages of these two approaches? I am a neophyte in matters pdf, and your counsel will be gratefully received.
Thanks... Cam Morton
