@OP: No, your design doesn't make any sense at all.
pritaeas has a valid point, but there is also the issue of having the same info on 2 different fields which will make your life difficult in the following steps.

Although you didn't explain what this is about, I can't help but notice what will you do if you find yourself with 5 brands or 50 brands.
In my book there is only 1 product table and when dealing with a product (brand or whatever) you go to that table. If additional info is required, you can create tables with specific functions (MSDS, packaging data, UPCs, photos, kitting/manufacturing info, etc) around that product master (or item master).


What is the reason for having two product tables ?

The reason is because two product tables have a different structure of information.
